Welcome to the Principals as Literacy Leaders (PALL) website.

The Principals as Literacy Leaders program has been designed to develop the capabilities of primary school principals as ‘effective literacy leaders’.

PALL has been trialled and delivered to over 600 principals from all jurisdictions around Australia and is continuing to expand.
