We are seeking two innovative classroom teachers to fulfil two Maternity Leave positions in our Primary School.

  1. Commencing Term 3 2020 for 12 months

  2. Commencing after Week 6 Term 3, 2020 for the remainder of the year, with an option to continue into 2021.

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, we may offer an immediate start, or casual work during Term Two, if able.


The successful applicant will hold the necessary qualifications, demonstrate excellent subject knowledge of the NSW Primary Curriculum and possess the capability to inspire students in their love of learning.

Calrossy seeks to create a dynamic, caring, Christian environment in which girls and boys may grow to be adults of faith, integrity and compassion who value learning and pursue life with confidence and initiative, committed to excellence and truth.

Our Values are to love the Lord God with all our heart, with all our mind, with all our soul and with all our strength. To love our neighbour as our self.

To consolidate our Christian journey Calrossy focuses on four core values:

  • Integrity is a constant in character that transcends the context in which the person finds themselves. Integrity requires courage and produces honesty, truthfulness and loyalty.
  • Selflessness is the ability to put the needs of others above one's own. Selflessness requires sacrifice and bears the fruit of humility, thoughtfulness and love.
  • Inclusiveness builds diversity in community and counteracts prejudice with acceptance. Inclusiveness is at the heart of mateship, promotes friendship and denies a foothold to loneliness. It is not an absolute value of inclusiveness at all costs. It gathers what is good and just, but rejects what is evil and unjust.
  • Resilience means 'bouncing back' from adversity and not giving up. Resilience is perseverance in a place of suffering which builds responsibility, patience and character.

The School's expectation is that all staff will promote and support a positive image of Calrossy as a quality Christian school.
