50 years is significant! PETAA is a leading association for primary educators in Australia, and one of the largest. First formed in 1972, we have built from humble beginnings to become a trusted source of resources, reference texts, professional development courses, and more. In the past 50 years, PETAA has grown and changed significantly, but one thing that hasn’t changed is our advocacy and professional support for teachers!
