In October 2018 Mr Willetts was elected as Vice President of the NSW Primary Principals' Association (NSWPPA). Later in the year he received an award for Meritorious Service to the assocation over many years. Upon receiving the award he was quick to thank the amazing team at Berry Public School for their support which allows him to fulfil the role and contribute more broadly to the system.
Mr Willetts has been the Chairperson of the NSWPPA Assessment, Planning and Accountability Reference Group since 2013 and has been directly involved with a wide range of reforms, policies and programs throughout the Department of Education
His work on the NSWPPA benefits our school in a variety of ways such as creating high level professional networks, giving us early insight into key reforms, training and professional learning opportunitites, and allowing us to solve issues quickly to benefit all schools. The Berry Way has also informed changes to our system with many department senior executives visiting our school over the years.
In his role as Vice President of the NSWPPA Mr Willetts regularly meets with the Minister of Education as well as the senior executive of the department.
