Position Vacant: Principal

Willunga Waldorf School, Willunga


We are seeking to appoint a motivated and engaging Principal with vision and experience, resilience and strength of character to lead the school in its next phase of growth and development. The successful applicant will embody the school’s vision, being an educator who is strong, balanced and dynamic, and will work collaboratively with his/ her colleagues, parents and the School Council to ensure the school’s continued evolution.


Willunga Waldorf is an exciting and rewarding place to work. The school culture is one of collaboration, innovation and life-long learning.  We are engaged in a dynamic path of educational research and practice, which remains responsive to both the inner nature of each student and to the changing conditions of the society we live in.  Our curriculum remains comprehensive across academic, artistic and practical domains and our year 12 program provides a recognized pathway to tertiary study.  Over the last year we have conducted a wide-ranging review of our Leadership, Management and Governance structures. 


The Principal will have a strong commitment to Waldorf Education and knowledge of current learning and curriculum issues K-12 in the broader educational community. He/she will have the drive and creativity to effectively guide the development of our growing school community and its resources and build WWS to its highest potential.


The school principal will carry out their responsibilities with due consideration and sensitivity to the social organisation of the school and its ethos. It is essential that the person work in healthy and respectful partnership with the College of Teachers and the School Council. The Principal must be able to work collaboratively and establish clear communication guidelines with all bodies in the school.


A concept of ‘servant leadership’ – accountability, action and strategic vision in order to serve the needs of the students, staff and community – underpins this role.
