Position Information 

Positioned in the heart of the Balmain Peninsula, Balmain Public School is a dynamic and innovative inner-city school, known locally as the 'school in the park'.

Approximately 1% of students identify as Aboriginal or of Torres Strait Islander descent, whilst 35% of students come from an English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D) background.

The school is staffed by dedicated, enthusiastic and supportive teachers, who deliver effective high-quality teaching and learning programs, underpinned by the school's targets and vision. In order to meet the needs of our future-focused learners, Balmain Public School is ensuring all teaching and learning programs implement creativity, critical thinking, collaborative learning environments and build on effective communication skills.

The school values effective, supportive partnerships with parents, carers and the highly-involved community, who are committed to providing opportunities for all students to develop their full potential.
