Australian primary principals

Friday 6 August was Australian Primary Principals Day. Principals and school staff didn’t have a whole lot to celebrate on the day, so we’re taking a moment to acknowledge the IEU’s members who are principals, their dedication, and the contribution they make to school communities.

The IEU recently heard from the principal of a large primary school in the greater Sydney area. This principal expressed great concern for their staff and disappointment in the NSW Government’s lack of consultation with teachers about how to manage teaching and learning during the outbreak impacting NSW. We believe this principal's experience reflects many throughout NSW/ACT.
