Supporting the independent education community

Proud to be Union

Melissa Clark is one of the growing numbers of young teachers joining our Union who enjoy being active and involved members.

Pictured above, Melissa attended the IEU stop work rally at Leichhardt Town Hall in December, part of the Union’s Catholic systemic schools campaign.

A teacher at St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School Ashfield, Melissa is proud to be Union.

“I joined the IEU in 2014 in my first year of teaching – the rep was so good and I felt it was the right thing to do,” she said.

“We have a great rep here and I really value all the work she does and what the Union does for us all. I feel it’s important to give back to the Union and to all teachers and support staff who have fought for what we now have in our profession.

“We need to support our Union and I want to be an active member and encourage other young teachers to join and be part of it all.”
