Friday, 4th August 2023 – Today is Principals' Day and Camp Australia, the leading provider of Before and After School Care, and Vacation Care, has announced its next Insight Series webinar which will cover wellbeing for school leaders.

The Principal Wellbeing Report, recently tabled at parliament, showed a 64% increase in “red flag” alerts from principals in 2022 and increasing incidents of parental dysregulation towards teachers and school leaders, which highlight a need for this wellbeing discussion.

The Camp Australia "Enhancing Wellbeing: Empowering School Leaders" webinar will take place on Thursday, 7th September 2023, at 2:00pm AEST.

Warren Jacobson, CEO at Camp Australia will be joined by a panel including Kristen Douglas, Head of Schools at headspace, to discuss this important subject. Ms Douglas is a prominent figure in education and mental health sectors. All school leaders are invited to register for this free webinar at

The webinar will help school leaders who want to invest time in their wellbeing and gain practical insights that will empower them to make a positive impact on their school and community. Ms Douglas will delve into the critical issue of school leader wellbeing and seasoned school leaders will share their expertise and practical insights on handling parental dysregulation.

Warren Jacobson remarked: "As an integral part of the school community, Camp Australia is committed to delivering insights, expertise, and strategies to tackle the pressing challenges faced by our school leaders. The Insight Series is one way we offer school leaders access to industry specialists and content focusing on key topics of interest such as resilience, mental health and wellbeing.
