Principal Position: Birali Steiner School, Beachmere, Queensland

Birali Steiner School invites applications for the role of School Principal, commencing January 2023. We are seeking an experienced school leader with an understanding of Steiner pedagogy to grow the school sustainably while creating a culture of inclusiveness and collaboration.

Birali Steiner School is a developing, innovative, and vibrant Steiner School, in Beachmere just north of Brisbane on the extraordinary coastline of Moreton Bay, Queensland. The school is accredited for Prep to Year 10. 

We have a dedicated, growing staff community of 30 and approximately 110 students. The Principal works closely with a Leadership Team comprising a Teaching and Learning Co-ordinator and a Business Manager and is accountable to a governance Board.

The school moved to its current site 3 years ago and has beautiful architecturally designed buildings set in a traditional bush environment of 26 acres just a few kilometres from the beach.

As Principal you will lead with strong values to ensure learning experiences that encompass and emphasise the Steiner pedagogy, while also growing enrolments, expanding the infrastructure to meet future needs, and ensuring the school is financially robust.

Building relationships with the local parent community as well as other stakeholders is an important aspect of this role. It is essential that the Principal establishes clear direction and effective communication, working collaboratively, in a respectful partnership with the Board, Leadership Team and all staff to support the well-being and education development of our students.

Applicants are to provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae, contact details for three referees, and a response to each of the selection criteria.
