Advertised Vacancy Number: SS/TCH706558
Roebourne District High School (DHS) are seeking to establish a pool of culturally responsive and innovative educators for appointments to permanent and fixed term, full-time and part-time vacancies which may arise during the 2022 school year. Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements within the 2022 school year.
Suitable applicants should be ready to form strong, respectful relationship with their students. We are looking for teachers who are enthused and excited by finding out what their students are interested in and developing personalised learning plans with each one, mapping the curriculum, documenting each and every student’s work and learning.
Our Big Picture Education Teachers (Advisory Teachers) take responsibility for student learning across the curriculum including literacy and numeracy. We are seeking Advisory Teachers who are committed to helping each and every student believe that they matter. You should see and value the culture, talents, and interests of others. You will ideally work with others to identify, understand and respond to individual needs. We are seeking teachers who never give up on any student.
We support our students to identify and pursue their interests and passions. We work with them to develop learning plans where these strengths are central to their work. We want to prepare our young people for their pathways into training, further education or employment post-secondary school and we start that by connecting our students to the community through internships. We aim to have strong relationships with families. We do this each term through learning plan meetings and exhibitions. We have high expectations for each and every student and this leads the ways we teach and learn, continually challenging our students to deepen their learning.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the school to discuss the unique context of our school before submitting your application.
Roebourne DHS caters to students from Kindergarten to Year 12, with approximately 98% of the students being Aboriginal. Most of our students come from three main language groups: The Ngarluma people (who are the traditional owners of the land), the Yindjibarndi people and the Banyjima people. Our students come to school strong in language and culture.
At our school, students use their heads, hearts and hands to learn and walk in two worlds. Families and community are our learning partners and we plan for a strong future for each person and for our school. Our Secondary team is a supportive learning community that encourages students and staff to achieve their potential through the approach of ‘one student at a time in a community of learners’. Our students become responsible and active members of the community through a strong focus on the principles of the Big Picture design for education, encompassing academic excellence, development of social skills, emotional wellbeing, respect and values.
More information on the Big Picture Education design can be found at www.bigpicture.org.au.
