SPA Awards

Since 2007 the School Psychologists’ Association of WA Inc (SPA) has sought to recognise and honour the contributions of SPA members who, through their work as school psychologists, make a significant contribution to education in Western Australia. School Psychologists are nominated by colleagues, managers and Principals who in so doing are fostering a culture of open acknowledgement and celebration of the difference school psychologists make to lives of young people and their school communities.
