Founding Teacher/School Leader – Expressions of Interest Welcome

Founding Teacher/School Leader

A rare opportunity! Expressions of Interest welcomed.

A newly approved school ready to open in 2020.

Seeking someone with strong leadership and business management skills to take our new ‘up and coming’ Steiner school into its next chapter.

‘Site ready’ including:

  • classrooms
  • fencing
  • air-conditioning
  • gardens
  • play equipment
  • ACCREDITATION APPROVED for Prep to Class Three, and to grow naturally each year to Class Six.

Tropical North Steiner School is ready to open its doors next year! Nestled in the heart of Mossman QLD, only 15 minutes to the famous town of Port Douglas, this school site has a tropical rainforest backdrop (great for walking tracks) and surrounded by clear water swimming holes and beaches. Mossman’s main industry is cane farming and Port Douglas is tourism. The last 18 months has been spent creating a site that is equipped with a newly painted and renovated building, new fencing, gardens, play areas and air-conditioning. Planning applications are also in progress and paid for. A Steiner Playgroup has also been running for 18 months with ten children attending.

Local markets take place in both Mossman and Port Douglas and there are plenty of tourist attractions including the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest, Mossman Gorge waterfalls and the list goes on. Much education is still required to help the community understand what a Steiner education may look like for their children but we are fortunate to have a very supportive sister school, Cairns Hinterland Steiner School only 1 1/4 hour away which is more than happy to welcome our interested families to their information and classroom tours amongst helping out with parent information sessions on our own school site.

Much of the hard work has been done in regards to school set up and all ingredients are there to make this school flourish. We need the right person with strong leadership qualities, business management skills, vision and passion who can continue on with this pioneering journey, taking TNSS into the second century of Steiner Education.
