Supporting the independent education community

Help get the children off Nauru

Scott Morrison has the power to immediately end the suffering of refugee children, their families and others seeking asylum who are stuck in limbo on Nauru.  He can immediately order their transfer to Australia and prevent the trauma they are experiencing every day.


As teachers, educational leaders, and support staff in schools, early learning centres and preschools, we must take a stand and demand that the Prime Minister takes action. 


Please sign our letter to Scott Morrison and help get children off Nauru


The Independent Education Union of Australia and Australian Education Union are working together to demand that the Federal Liberal Government immediately order all refugee children, their families and others seeking asylum be transferred from Nauru and brought to Australia.


Every day that refugee children remain on Nauru will cause further hurt and damage and prevent them from accessing education, medical care, and the safe future that all children deserve.


As education professionals we work every day to care for and support the learning and welfare of our students.  Keeping asylum seekers on Nauru is at odds with our values and we must act together to demand change.


By signing the letter to the Prime Minister you can stand with teachers and support staff around Australia demanding that Scott Morrison acts.
