Are you a passionate and dedicated primary school teacher with a strong commitment for improving the educational outcomes of students?
Alkimos Primary School (PS) is looking to establish a pool of dedicated Kindergarten to Year 6 teachers for appointments to permanent and fixed term, full-time and part-time vacancies which may arise during the 2020 school year. Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements within the 2020 school year.
Alkimos PS is seeking innovative, enthusiastic teaching professionals with demonstrated knowledge, skills and experience teaching across a broad range of year levels with a strong commitment to professional development and continuous improvement to facilitate a best practice approach towards teaching and learning.
Alkimos PS opened in 2016 and currently has an enrolment of around 580 students, Years K-6. Mainstream enrolment continues to grow steadily. Our approaches to teaching and learning are that our staff members understand that the quality of your relationships with students is the key. Our teachers are able to adeptly engage families and the Alkimos school community, as crucial to our school's ongoing success is the extent to which this sense of belonging and connectedness can be created. Our staff strive to create a highly collaborative learning environment.
In developing exemplary teaching and learning approaches that have become the hallmark of Alkimos PS, teachers showcase their prowess in using First Steps, Talk4Writing, cooperative learning strategies and associated principles of these. Use of ICT will also be strength. Teachers and all staff will be an advocate for the importance of play in learning, taking advantage of the excellent nature playgrounds in our Early Childhood Education and primary areas. A commitment to implementing whole-school curriculum policies and programs will be evident, demonstrating all teachers' capacity to be attuned to the individual needs of students, and their authentic skill to provide an inclusive, fair and safe classroom.
Underpinning our approaches is a clear recognition that students' learning outcomes and opportunities are maximised when robust non-academic strategies and beliefs are apparent. In implementing and upholding these ideals, our staff reflect an awareness of the types of services and support required by the students, families and the community of Alkimos and this northern coastal area in general.
