About the Job

Teachers are responsible to the school principal for all aspects of classroom management on a single or composite grade class. In Grades Prep to 6 teachers teach most subjects across the curriculum. In Grades 7 and 8 teachers specialise in the subjects mentioned although the ability to teach in other subjects would be an advantage. You may also be expected to provide some assistance and guidance to other teachers at the school if you have a particular area of expertise.
