Noongar Language and Culture Teacher

Commencing Term 1, 2022 (1 year contract, part-time)

“At Perth Waldorf School we are committed to promoting the safety, health and wellbeing of children and young people and expect all school staff, parents, students, volunteers and visitors to the school to share that commitment”

The school is located in a bush land setting near Walubup Bibra Lake in the southern suburbs of Perth on Whadjak Country (approx. 20 minutes from the CBD and 15 minutes from Waylyup, Fremantle). We provide a Steiner education from Playgroup to Class 12.

Perth Waldorf School is seeking a Noongar language teacher for Class 7 commencing in February 2022.  The position will be for two half days each week.  If an intensive 4-week block of 32 hours (two days of 4 hours per day over four weeks) is more attractive to you, the school would be interested in accommodating such an arrangement. 

The successful applicant will need to be experienced with teaching Noongar language lessons and have some familiarity working with a class of 27 adolescents.  You will be supported by a qualified class teacher or assistant, but the lesson content and curriculum will be your responsibility.  As the language teacher you will be required to plan, deliver and assess the learning of the students.

Perth Waldorf School has a strong history of working with our Elders and have run a Cultural studies programme in the past.  We also have an active Reconciliation Action Plan that we welcome your collaboration with.

Applicants must be eligible for registration with the Teachers Registration Board of WA, have permission to work in Western Australia and hold a Working with Children Check.
