Dawson Park Primary School (PS) is seeking to establish a pool of Kindergarten to Year 6 Teachers for appointments to permanent and fixed term, full-time and part-time vacancies which may arise during the 2023 school year and up to the end of Term 4, 2024. Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements within the 2023 school year, up to the end of Term 4, 2024.
Our strong vibrant and supportive learning community believes that “learning has no limits” for our students and our teachers. Our highly effective school is seeking high performance, team-oriented and knowledgeable teachers who have the ability to collaborate and actively support the pedagogy of the school- explicit instruction.
We are a strong supportive learning community where our teachers have experience adhering to whole-school approaches to teaching and learning including one or more of specific programs such as Spelling Mastery Signpost Maths, and Let’s Decode. We are seeking teachers with exceptional skill in explicitly teaching literacy and numeracy content and shifting it to long term memory.
It is highly desirable that teachers can skilfully scaffold content to provide differentiated teaching processes when catering for a whole class with mixed ability students. Suitable applicants that possess the ability to utilise trauma informed practice and proactive behaviour shaping strategies that support positive student outcomes in and out of the classroom will be looked upon favourably.
Applicants that possess an interpersonal skill-set that enables them to build strong and valuable relationships with students, staff and parents, and commit to ongoing professional growth by embracing new, evidence-based teaching and learning practices that lead to teacher improvement and superior student outcomes will also be highly regarded.
About the School
Dawson Park PS was opened in 1982. The school is set in a beautiful bush setting and offers a strong academic and pastoral environment for all students. Our learning community currently has almost 500 students and this is expected to grow in coming years with housing developments taking place within the school's intake area. Our dedicated and professional team strive to ensure the best learning outcomes for all our students. In our learning community parents are vital partners in the education of their child. Parents of Dawson Park students are supportive and work collaboratively with us. Our School Board is an active and knowledgeable group who represents the views of our parents and community. Parents also provide valuable help and support through the P&C in the operation of the canteen and uniform shop. They support the school financially by fundraising for resources that are vital for our teaching programs.
