Junior School Performing Arts Teacher

Junior School Performing Arts Teacher

The role

We have the rare opportunity for a passionate and experienced Performing Arts Teacher to join our creative and innovative Junior School on a permanent basis from Term 1, 2023.

You will be an established and vibrant teacher, confident in following curriculum, scoping sequence and programming creative and innovative lessons. This role is highly collaborative, working with members of Performing Arts both in curricular and co-curricular, across the entire College base. You will be given autonomy to create your own lesson plans that integrate with other KLAs, ensuring engagement and enjoyment for all students, no matter what their skill level.

With your skills and grounding in the Performing Arts space, you will also have the opportunity to branch out of the classroom and produce, manage, and direct full scale productions, including our highly anticipated yearly Year 6 Musical and Year 5 Showcase. The productions involve organisation of props, sets, costuming, volunteer management and of course ensuring each student has the opportunity to shine.

In return, you will join a supportive, fun, caring and valued community that is built on kindness to themselves and to others, with a focus on wellbeing for students and staff alike.

Our kind of teacher

You will display the following skills and capabilities:

  • Have a demonstrated ability to teach across all areas of Performing Arts, with a focus on drama and music.
  • Proficiency in piano (conducting and accompanying) and leading bands would be highly regarded.
  • Have a sound understanding of NESA syllabus requirements and current NESA accreditation
  • Be committed to improving educational outcomes
  • Be confident in differentiating the curriculum in the classroom
  • Be a reflective professional engaged in ongoing development and research in relation to your practice
  • Be committed to supporting student wellbeing.

Your kind of school

Pymble people are at the heart of what the College offers its students. That’s why every teacher, operational and co-curricular staff member is valued for being the person they are, for the quality of their work, for their diverse contribution and for their wins – big and small. We express our appreciation in many ways, including through recognition programs, story sharing, celebrations, feedback and competitive remuneration.

We treasure our caring, collegiate community, which Pymble people often refer to as the ‘Pymble family’. We also appreciate that our family is not the only one in the lives of Pymble people, so we ‘walk the talk’ when it comes to supporting work-life balance, providing family benefits and contributing to community connections.

Your kind of benefits

We offer salaries above the award, ranging from $87,000 – $123,000 per annum (plus superannuation). Your salary will be based on your NESA accreditation level.

We offer a range of benefits, including:

  • mentoring groups and professional development support
  • access to our Aquatic and Fitness Centre, with free Yoga and Pilates classes
  • daily morning tea and onsite cafes
  • discounted school fees (where applicable)
  • a dedicated Staff Wellbeing team and regular social events, and
  • easy access with close public transport and onsite or nearby (street) parking.

We also provide a wide range of opportunities for Pymble people to grow personally and professionally, including through growth strategies, training and professional development, career progression, access to technology and resources, and health and wellbeing opportunities.
