Wellbeing Support Officer

Wellbeing Support Officer – (1FTE) Full-time

The Perth Waldorf School teaches students from Kindergarten to Class 12 according to the indications of Rudolf Steiner. Steiner’s curriculum is holistic, creative and structured beautifully to meet the needs of young people at their stage of development.

We are seeking the services of a Wellbeing Support Officer to work alongside our Student Support team to provide pastoral care and support for students from Classes 7 to 12. In addition, you will need to constructively engage with anthroposophy, the Steiner curriculum and the school ethos and collaboratively deliver opportunities for personal growth to young people attending our School.
