Testimonials

SASSLA
Without the support of SASSLA I would not have stayed connected to and be continuing in my chosen and much loved career.  It is so important that Principals have the full support and confidence of the Department.  My very public legal case highlighted the fragility of the system when support and confidence dissipates in the face of political interference, media attacks and intolerance.  SASSLA gave me support and encouragement during a very difficult time and when it seemed that no-one else would listen
