Welcome to the Auckland Primary Principals’ Association – the APPA. We have been the collective voice for primary and intermediate school principals in the greater Auckland region – from Franklin to Hibiscus Coast – for neary 100 years.


The APPA is a strong and viable professional organisation that has a history of service, advocacy and representation of principals’ interests in addressing the needs of primary and intermediate school education in New Zealand. In particular, being the largest local principals’ association in New Zealand, we are a strong lobby and support group that has influence at both the local and national levels.
