The purpose of this site is to provide retirement information to current and former members of the NSW Secondary Principals’ Council.

Research indicates that the vast majority of these principals will engage in paid employment (particularly in the education sector), volunteering or other forms of ‘work’ in their post-retirement years.

Apart from disseminating information and advice about preparing for retirement, post-retirement options and employment opportunities, a major feature of this site is the many articles written by our own website members on such topics as managing your retirement, keeping in touch, understanding your post-retirement options, pursuing further learning and planning for tours and travel.
