Class 5 Teacher, 0.9FTE

We are seeking an experienced Steiner Primary School Teacher for a one year replacement position in
2019. Responsibilities include covering all aspects of the Class Five curriculum following the Australian
Steiner Curriculum Framework. Specialist teachers take Music, Gardening, Craft, Japanese and German

For this position training and familiarity in Steiner pedagogy is highly desirable and duties will include
planning, delivery and assessing all Main Lessons, some practice sessions and afternoon classes, and
organising additional events and festivals as required. Personal qualities should include an affinity with
Anthroposophical ideas, a consistent approach to discipline, diligence in associated administrative tasks
and a positive, adaptable nature.

Tarremah is a well-established, vibrant independent school situated fifteen minutes south of Hobart, in
close proximity to a nature reserve, beaches and Mt Wellington. Turning thirty this year, the school is
governed by a dynamic and capable group of community members and managed collaboratively by an
Executive group consisting of Faculty representatives, the Business Manager, Education Administrator
and School Chairs following a republican model. All those in positions of authority are called upon to
aspire to a spirit of service inspired by ideals of inclusivity, the cultivation of the individual and care for
the collective ‘good’.

Tarremah offers classes from Kindergarten to Class 10 and has a school population of around 220
students. Our location allows us to take advantage of Tasmania’s wilderness, world heritage areas,
coastlines and indigenous cultural sites. The city of Hobart offers a vibrant cultural life that rivals larger
cities, while Hobart’s smaller size makes more of this culture accessible to everyone.

The successful applicant for this position will need to be registered as a teacher in Tasmania and hold a
current Tasmanian Working With Vulnerable People card and relevant First Aid training.

Further enquiries can be directed to the Education Administrator via email: wendyh@tarremah.tas.edu.au
