Mixed-age Primary Class Co-Teacher

Sep 13 2017 | Helena River Steiner School | Perth, Western Australia

Seeking a strong, innovative and flexible co-teacher for small group
For 1 day a week
Starting Term 4, 2017

Helena River Steiner School in Midland, Western Australia, is seeking a Steiner Primary Class teacher for a small mixed-age group of students aged 6-10, for one day a week.
Our ideal candidate is a qualified and experienced Steiner Class teacher who is resourceful, flexible and able to bring the Steiner curriculum in an authentic and individual way to each student. Although the Main Lesson may be the same for all students, the work done in their books may need to be catered to each student’s level of learning.
The successful applicant will ideally be also able to teach a specialist subject such as music, craft, language or woodwork.
The students are effectively a homeschool group as we are not yet a registered school, and therefore some flexibility of content is possible. The candidate will be expected to liaise with the main class teacher in order to continue the Main Lesson work they are currently engaged in, plan, lead, record and assess the activities for the day, work independently and
creatively, and be a contributing member of our small, dedicated staff community.
At this stage the wage is a casual rate. The candidate must have a Police Clearance and a Working with Children Check, and ideally Fist Aid in an Education and Care Setting.
Applications considered as received.

About Helena River Steiner School

Four years ago we began a Steiner playgroup in Guildford, with the view to developing into a Steiner school in the Midland/Swan Valley area.
Our first mixed-age kindergarten class (3-6 yrs) began at the beginning of 2016 in our new premises in Midland. In Term 2 of this year (2017) we also opened a mixed-age Primary Class.
Although we are working towards school registration, we currently operate under an
Education and Care Services approval and children of compulsory school age must be
registered as a homeschooler to attend our programs. We hope to be a registered school
some time in 2018. We aim in the future to expand our mixed-age primary classes each year until we become single stream. The exciting journey ahead requires tenacity, creativity,
energy and a spirit of service and enthusiasm from all involved.
