Assistant Principal, Ongoing, commencing January 2022

Holy Rosary School Derby is a small single-stream primary school with 145 students from 3 Year old Kindy to Year 6 located in the Kimberley region in Derby, which is a small town 2 hours north east of Broome located on the edge of the amazing King Sound. It is the gateway to the wonders of the Kimberley region and a great base to explore the amazing West Kimberley.  The school population has a mix of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students, with highly skilled Aboriginal Teaching Assistants working in each class. Teaching in the Kimberley is an invaluable experience that will allow you to develop excellent cross-cultural pedagogical skills and feel like you are really making a difference. This position attracts the generous benefits and incentives of the Kimberley Calling program which includes location allowance and financial incentives, fast accrual of long service leave, subsidised housing and all relocation expenses taken care of. Details of the Kimberley calling incentives can be found on the CEWA website.

This is an outstanding opportunity for an educator seeking to commence or expand their leadership experience.  Secondment may be considered, subject to approval of the successful applicant’s current principal.
