Mother Teresa Primary School is looking for a dedicated, enthusiastic part-time music specialist teacher to join our collaborative team.

Mother Teresa School opened in January 2011 as an Archdiocesan school serving the Parish of St Patrick's Beenleigh. We now have classes from P-6 and will progress to a three stream school, with an expected population of approximately 600 students. As a new school, we will be incorporating contemporary pedagogies and technologies, whilst still maintaining a strong pastoral environment centred on our catholic faith, traditions and ethos.
