Supporting and encouraging the Christian Mission and Ethos of Calrossy Anglican School
 
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 an experienced, innovative and qualified, Head of Creative and Performing Arts and LOTE (CAPA/LOTE), for a permanent position starting in Term one, 2020. The successful applicant will demonstrate strong communication, leadership and administrative skills. They will have excellent subject knowledge of the NESA 7–12 syllabus documents and possess the capacity to encourage and inspire staff and students in their love of learning in Creative and Performing Arts and LOTE.
 
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 our self.
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.
