HISTORY of the ASSOCIATION
The West Australian State School Registrars’ Association was founded in 1994 by a small group of Registrars who realised there was an urgent need for a non-industrial association to support Administration Support Staff working in Government schools. Those original Registrars are now all Life Members of the Association. The WASSRA Management Committee is comprised of eleven members, who all work full time and commit to WASSRA on a voluntary basis. Our committee members are based around the state: metro north and south and various regional locations.
Our Association is a high profile, pro-active and professional organisation, that is accessible and affordable for Administration Support Staff of schools, be they male or female, employed within primary or secondary, metropolitan, regional or rural, independent or public schools.
We communicate effectively in an engaging, empowering, innovative way, using different media, both traditional and cutting-edge, to ensure we reach the maximum audience.
Our role is to provide future-focused, sustainable support and professional development for members that keeps us in the forefront of both members’ and potential members’ minds.
Membership of our Association is far more than “convention only”, providing ongoing tangible benefits for members. We are a strong, growing Association which is recognised by our colleagues for the value we bring to the education sector and for the vital partnership we forge between the Department of Education and our members.
The focus of the Plan is to move the Association forward into the future, offering members full support in all areas of their work.
