Location Profile

Moorabbin Primary School No. 1111 dates back to 1872, making it the oldest school in the district. The school is set in a residential area with attractive, well maintained grounds bordering Dane and Worthing Roads. Currently 390 students are enrolled at the school, and we have nineteen classes.

The school has recently benefitted from a new Junior Learning Centre and a flexible learning area for our senior students providing modern learning facilities.
The school offers a wide range of specialist classes including PE, Science, Language (Mandarin), Music and Art. The school is computer networked and all classrooms are air-conditioned.

All staff members are expected to be involved in school activities and contribute to the continuous improvement of the teaching and learning at the school.

Prospective staff wanting to work at Moorabbin should be well versed in all aspects of use of technology with students including the use of Interactive Whiteboards.

The school has recently undergone a review and is focussed on better communication right across its community including maintaining the high achievement its students have in English and Mathematics with its new for year strategic plan. The school is well supported by an active School Council and Parent and Friends group.

Moorabbin Primary School teaches literacy through the MSL approach. Multi-sensory Structured Learning (MSL) is a scientific based approach that uses explicit teaching to inform students of common spelling rules and patterns.

We have a highly regarded pastoral care program. In addition, our own `Moorabbin Kids are Terrific Kids' program is well thought of and children from Moorabbin PS are often complimented by community members for their caring and polite natures.

Our motto is 'The Place to Excel'. Excel means to outclass, to stand out, to surpass and this is what we strive for by positively encouraging every child to exceed even their own dreams.

We value a learning community where all children can flourish and be challenged, learning to problem solve and pursue excellence in all that they do. This is epitomised by the high standards our students achieve.

Moorabbin Primary School has consistently achieved excellent academic results as measured by National testing programs for a number of years. This is due to the extremely dedicated staff who work so hard for the good of the school and the children they care for.

We are seeking passionate staff who are willing to learn and contribute to our vibrant school.

Selection Criteria

SC4 Capacity to work cooperatively with a range of people including teachers, education support, students and parents.

Role

Undertakes routine tasks that are usually carried out under close supervision and direction. Work that carries some degree of independence will generally involve a limited number of tasks performed on a regular basis where priorities are clear, procedures are well established and direction is readily available.

Work has little scope for deviation. Problems can usually be solved by reference to well documented procedures and instructions and clearly established practices. Deviation from established procedures will require reference to others for guidance and direction.

Assistance is readily available when problems arise. An experienced employee at range 1 will exercise limited judgement within clearly defined guidelines and well established practices that relate specifically to the tasks performed.

Does not carry responsibility for the work of others. More experienced employees will provide basic guidance and advice to others relating to tasks within the work area.

An education support class position supports the educational services being provided to students, but must not include duties of teaching as defined in clause 2.6.1 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) or its successor.

Supervision of students cannot be required except where it is an integral part of the employee's position or involves supervision of students individually or in small groups, in controlled circumstances, where the responsibility for students remains clearly with a teacher.

Qualification requirements do not operate at range 1. Certification requirements may be required to legally perform specific tasks - e.g. driver's licence, first aid, safe food handling.

Responsibilities

The responsibilities of this position will be:

  • Assist students on an individual or group basis in specific learning areas.
  • Assist with the communication between students and teachers, particularly the interpretation of instructions.
  • Provide basic physical and emotional care for students.
  • Participate in team meetings.
  • Assist with the supervision of pupils in playgrounds, at camps, on excursions, in sporting activities, therapy activities and life skills.
  • Set up and put away equipment and materials in support of teaching programs.
  • Observe students and draw the attention of the teacher to them where necessary.
  • Ensure work areas and materials, equipment and appliances are maintained in a clean and ready to use condition.

Who May Apply
