About Us
The primary aim of the Perth Waldorf School (PWS) is the provision of high quality education based on the insights of Rudolf Steiner. Based in the southern suburb of Bibra Lake, we provide a Steiner Education for children from early childhood (Playgroup, Kindergarten) to Class 12. With over 540 children in attendance and 100 staff members, PWS is committed to delivering a curriculum that is culturally rich, integrated and artistic. Feedback from our Class 12 Graduates is that they have been seen and supported as individuals by their teachers, the curriculum is enlivening and enjoyable and they move into tertiary study with confidence.

Perth Waldorf School’s successful development has been a result of active, conscientious work including positive leadership. It is vital that this is maintained and enhanced by you. We are not seeking a disrupter eager to make their mark and move up the ladder but a team player who loves the art of leadership and helping others achieve their potential. You will engage with all aspects of the school and you will play a supportive role to the School Administrator (Principal).

About You
This role is critical to the success of the school and will require an individual with proven leadership potential who can demonstrate the expertise and proficiency needed in supporting a highly successful school with a focus initially on the High School.

The successful candidate will need to demonstrate a strong commitment and advocacy for the Steiner philosophy, a willingness to authentically develop their wisdom from engagement with anthroposophy and have knowledge of curriculum management towards meeting the needs of students who stand before us.

They will lead by example by being flexible in their approach and will demonstrate a positive balance between management, people and Steiner pedagogy.

The ability to create and maintain a warm, caring and enthusiastic culture among staff and students is essential.

A current Working with Children Check and registration with the Teachers Registration Board of Western Australia (or the capacity to successfully achieve both of these), is essential.

A remuneration package linked to similar positions in West Australian state schools will be negotiated with the successful applicant. A minimum starting salary being $116,000 AUD. The school would consider supporting relocation costs to Perth for the right applicant.

Our magical festivals bring the community together in a very special and unique way.  Our link to nature is evident in the environment where we grow the food we eat at lunch time.  The kindergarten sits in a rural setting on Waiheke Island which is, according to Lonely Planet, one of the world’s most beautiful islands only 40 minutes from Auckland city.
