Join a dedicated and passionate team who are working together to ensure our students flourish!
Honeywood Primary School (PS) is seeking to establish a pool of enthusiastic, innovative and motivated teacher for appointment to permanent and fixed term, full time and part time vacancies which may arise during the remainder of the 2019 school year, up to the end of Term 2, 2020.
At Honeywood PS we value the whole child acknowledging that academic, social, emotional and physical pursuits must be evenly addressed. We believe that knowing our students individually, culturally and developmentally is as important as knowing the content we teach and that relationships are the key to success.
Suitable applicants will be passionate and positive educators who are committed to working with the whole child while embracing and implementing our whole-school approaches. They will create an effective, engaging and inclusive learning environment based on high performance and high care while incorporating play and the integrated use of ICT for learning. Honeywood PS has a Bring Your Own Device (I Pad) program for students in Years 3 – 6 so applicants with an interest in these year levels must demonstrate an understanding and application of the SAMR model for technology use in the classroom. Suitable applicants will have a strong understanding of the WA Curriculum and will be able to use assessment data to evaluate the effectiveness of teaching programs, set targets and plan for differentiated learning opportunities for all students in their class.
Applicants will be required to work collaboratively with administration, other teachers, support staff and the wider community as part of a growing team to support the further development of our new school with a willingness to take on additional roles beyond the classroom and a commitment to weekly meetings. They will have a positive attitude and the ability to anticipate and adapt to change, showing initiative, flexibility and creative problem solving to produce the best opportunities for students. Additionally, applicants will contribute to a positive learning environment focussed on improving student outcomes through developing teacher expertise and knowledge with a commitment to continuous learning, engagement with current research and accountability, reflection and improvement through data analysis.
Honeywood Primary School is an Independent Public School (IPS) and opened for Kindergarten and Pre-primary students in 2017 and for all students Kindergarten to Year 6 in 2018. Our enrolments have increased steadily since opening.
