The ability to teach lower secondary French may be required. The hours will be according to the needs of the Languages Department and by necessity will vary.

In addition to this, the Junior School French Language Specialist will liaise with all French teachers as well as other Language teachers to develop a range of activities to complement our language programs, which might include the following:

  • Flexible and innovative approach to Language teaching in the Junior School
  • Adaptable in a classroom of differing learning needs
  • Have relevant experience in Primary methodology
  • Develop and implement the WA curriculum
  • Contribute to and willing to incorporate technology in their teaching
