Covering a well-deserved period of long service leave, we have the opportunity for an innovative and engaging Science teacher to join our team on a part-time basis, Thursdays and Fridays, for Term 2 this year. Casual and ongoing block opportunities may be on offer after this period for the right candidate.
As a confident educator or new graduate, you will be engaged in teaching Junior Science classes including the very exciting Marine and Aquaculture Technology classes. You will have an opportunity to design and deliver the curriculum in creative ways to enhance student outcomes and engagement.

In providing a facilitation of effective classroom management, you will see success in applying new strategies and innovative pedagogical practice across your curriculum and wellbeing classes.
Our leading STEM programs assist in introducing our students in the world of Science and what possibilities it could bring for their future, and our teachers are an integral part of that experience. You will work with like-minded scientific educators, whose focus on innovation and wellbeing is evident.
