This was the biggest learning moment in my leadership thus far. I am grateful for all the hate, all the love, all the anger, all the grace and all the opportunity to learn.

In all this, two things had remain true:

1. This government and President Bio have always prioritised the welfare of teachers and

2. I wasn’t going to rest until Teachers have a Collective Bargaining Agreement that we can all be proud of as a country that addresses the issues of Teachers, Teaching and the Teaching Profession. It’s one thing to say it, it’s another to commit to it in an Agreement. 26 years later, we have a fully signed agreement.

All I want to express now is special gratitude to everyone but in particular the President, the Vice President, my team, the Executive of the SLTU, the TSM and all teachers.” He stated
