There are fears our current Covid regulations could tip our education sector over the edge. 

With the current rules around isolating as a contact, especially within schools, principals are dealing with increased pressures and much larger workloads.  

Last year we had many principals who walked away because they were burnt out - at a much younger age than retirement, which is unusual for the position.  

That's now the concern already this year as well.
