  • Secondary Opportunity
  • Brisbane Bayside Location
  • Terms 2 - 4 2021

Moreton Bay College was established in 1901 as a school for girls from PP-12 and now supports an enrolment in excess of 1200 students. The College offers a rigorous academic program as well as a very broad program in sporting, musical, cultural and pastoral activities. The campus is built on 19 hectares of spacious, landscaped grounds situated just 15 kilometres from Brisbane’s CBD. Moreton Bay College is a school where every girl can develop her individual strengths and the confidence to make a unique contribution to the world.

An historic turning point in the College’s evolution occurred on July 1, 2011 when Moreton Bay Boys’ College (MBBC) and Moreton Bay College (MBC) became formally amalgamated on the premise that they are stronger together. Governed by a single Board and led by a single Principal, each school retains its single gender focus and its own personality and attributes. Both schools have significant strengths to benefit the other and together have a unique market-leading proposition in private school education.

The College is seeking a suitably qualified and experienced Teacher to teach English and Visual Art. This is a full-time, fixed term contract for Terms 2 - 4 2021 parental leave replacement. An ability to teach Religious Education would be desirable.

All teachers are appointed by the Executive Principal of MBC and MBBC and they are responsible to them for the over-all performance of their duties. The Executive Principal delegates their authority to senior staff members for the effective management of the College. This role will report directly to the Head of Departments - English and Humanities and Social Science.

The College offers a very broad program in sporting, musical, faith and pastoral activities. Staff are expected, therefore, to participate in the co-curricular programme and pastoral life of the College.

All staff need to be supportive of the values, Christian ethos and Ethical Statement of this Uniting Church day school for girls from PP-12.
