Job Requirements:

Calrossy Anglican School is located in Tamworth, a rapidly expanding regional city in Northern NSW. Calrossy celebrates its Centenary in 2019 and operates under the auspices of the Anglican Diocese of Armidale. We have five campuses and cater to the learning needs of boys and girls, both Boarding and Day. Continued outstanding academic results have placed us as one of the leading schools in the region.
 
Preamble
 
We are seeking to appoint highly experienced and enthusiastic teachers to join our successful and ambitious Music department.

We are looking for innovative and dynamic music educators to teach classroom music in both our Primary and Secondary School.

The successful applicant will demonstrate excellent subject knowledge of the NESA K – 12 syllabus documents and possess the capability to inspire students in their love of learning in Music.

Applicants must be excellent communicators, creative, able to work well with children of all ages, parents and other teachers and willing to take an active and enthusiastic part in the full life of the School outside normal teaching hours.
 
Calrossy seeks to create a dynamic, caring, Christian environment in which girls and boys may grow to be adults of faith, integrity and compassion who value learning and pursue life with confidence and initiative, committed to excellence and truth.
 
Our Values are to love the Lord God with all our heart, with all our mind, with all our soul and with all our strength. To love our neighbour as ourself.

To consolidate our Christian journey Calrossy focuses on four core values:
  • Integrity is a constant in character that transcends the context in which the person finds themselves. Integrity requires courage and produces honesty, truthfulness and loyalty.
  • Selflessness is the ability to put the needs of others above one’s own. Selflessness requires sacrifice and bears the fruit of humility, thoughtfulness and love.
  • Inclusiveness builds diversity in community and counteracts prejudice with acceptance. Inclusiveness is at the heart of mateship, promotes friendship and denies a foothold to loneliness. It is not an absolute value of inclusiveness at all costs. It gathers what is good and just, but rejects what is evil and unjust.
  • Resilience means ‘bouncing back’ from adversity and not giving up. Resilience is perseverance in a place of suffering which builds responsibility, patience and character.
 
The School’s expectation is that all staff will promote and support a positive image of Calrossy as a quality Christian school.
