ELTHAM College has been educating young women and men for the past 40 years. The College was conceived in 1973 as a new concept in independent, coeducational schooling. It was founded by a dynamic group of community members who were seeking schooling for their children that would look beyond average educational practice to education that fostered the talents, confidence, initiative and passion for learning in every individual.
Our location in the Nillumbik Shire, northeast of Melbourne, is no accident. Historically this district has inspired free thought and innovation. For years, artists, writers and intellectuals have been drawn to Nillumbik as a pivotal centre for inspiration. The notion of ELTHAM as one of Australia’s few truly independent schools was founded within this creative culture.
ELTHAM College is looking for a Psychologist experienced in school settings. The purpose of this role is to provide psychological services to students within the Senior School, Junior School and Early Learning Centre.
