Broome North Primary School (PS) is seeking a highly skilled, dedicated and enthusiastic Teacher – Music to join our friendly school.
Our school is a modern facility located on Yawuru land in the coastal town of Broome, part of Western Australia's stunning Kimberley region. Opening in 2015 with 100 students, our school has grown steadily over the past 6 years, with 380 projected enrolments for 2021.

- Subsidised GROH housing

- An annual travel concession for you and any dependents
You will join a team of staff who are committed to building positive relationships, with the motivation to pursue excellence. Our dedicated and professional teachers maintain an environment which supports each child every day to achieve their personal best. Staff employ evidence-based strategies within a defined whole-school approach to maximise the effect they have on student learning. In addition, we constantly aim to deliver the highest standards of pastoral care and support services in order to enable our students to thrive.
