St Columba Anglican School is an Anglican co-educational school for students from Kindergarten to Year 12 located in Port Macquarie on the mid north coast of New South Wales. In the past 17 years the School has grown from an initial enrolment of 79 students to a vibrant school community of almost 1,200 students. We now have over 140 teaching staff in full and part time positions, and more than 40 administrative and support staff.
The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the safety, welfare and well being of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
St Columba offers a feeling of community where all are appreciated and respected for their individual and collective contributions, and where there is an appreciation of the richness which diversity provides. We deliver a high standard of education and support within a framework of authentic Christian teaching and values. Our valued relationships are based on a genuine regard for all students, supportive classroom environments and exceptional pastoral care programs. Our teaching staff go the extra mile to help their students, including offering extra classes after school. Teachers are also very active in providing a range of co-curricular programs to the school, such as debating, sports, performing arts and community service.
Our support and administrative team play a vital role in providing professional support for the day to day activities at SCAS. Their invaluable skills span across areas including human resources, marketing, advertising, career development, accounting and teaching support.
Child Protection legislation requires preferred applicants to be subject to employment screening.
Child Protection Training - All staff will be informed annually of their legal responsibilities related to Child Protection through training or by way of a staff update provided in a staff meeting. Any staff who do not attend this training or the staff update, will be required to undertake training at a later date. This may be delivered online or face to face.
St Columba Anglican School seeks to appoint staff who demonstrate the highest professional skills and the ability to actively support the Christian ethos of the School. Every member of staff actively contributes to the culture of the School and is encouraged to contribute towards the success of the students and the goals of the School.
