Science Teacher (Years 7 - 12)
Science Teacher (Years 7 - 12) - Full-time Ongoing from Term 1 2014
Canberra Grammar School in Red Hill
Canberra Grammar School has a well-resourced, vibrant and progressive Science Department of fourteen teachers, a dynamic group of highly qualified and committed professionals. We are seeking inspirational and collaborative teachers, conversant with a wide range of educational technologies, to help the department continue its quest for excellence in Science teaching including the integration of educational technology into the Science curriculum. The School offers Agriculture, Biology, Chemistry and Physics for the HSC. An ability to teach to the highest levels of secondary school in one or more subjects is essential, and close experience of the NSW Higher School Certificate will be highly regarded. The School introduced the IB Diploma program in Year 11 2013 and this has seen a further increase in the number of senior Science students. As the IB moves into Year 12 in 2014 we anticipate further expansion.
The sciences are a very highly regarded academic discipline within the School. The Senior School builds on the strong foundations laid in our Primary School, providing worthwhile opportunities in extension and in support throughout the compulsory general Science course in Years 7 – 10.
In the 2013 Year 12 cohort of 136 boys, there is a total of 157 Science enrolments (8 in Agriculture, 27 in Biology, 68 in Chemistry, and 54 in Physics) divided across ten classes.
At the HSC examinations our Science candidatures achieved results strongly superior to the State averages. Almost all lessons are held in specialist science laboratories and there is thus a strong emphasis on hands-on discovery learning. The teachers are supported by two laboratory assistants.
This is an excellent opportunity for dedicated and passionate educators of Science to assume a teaching position in a highly effective and prestigious boys’ school.
