Mount Fox State School is a small remote school approximately 1 hours' drive from Ingham. We are the central hub of an isolated but united community. It is a picturesque, one teacher school, with fantastic staff and enthusiastic students.

We are an active member of the Ingham cluster of small schools. Our principal participates in the North Queensland professional learning community with other small school principals. Although Mount Fox State School is in a remote location, the students are still involved in interschool sporting, educational and cultural activities throughout the year. Our remote location is not seen as a barrier to active participation and involvement in extracurricular activities.

Our school employs a number of professional support staff (teacher-aides) to work with the students on their targeted learning needs. This high teacher-student ratio enables our school to differentiate student learning to the needs of the individual students and set individual student learning targets.

Our vision is to provide a well-rounded education with a targeted focus on the basics; high expectations for all students to achieve excellence; while encouraging self-confidence, respect and fun.

About the DRT role:

The successful applicant will have the best of both worlds - the opportunity to experience a range of schools within the Ingham Geographic Area for daily, short and long term relief, while also having the stability and security of guaranteed full-time employment! A DRT is also provided the same entitlements as a classroom teacher, including leave entitlements, non-contact time and access to professional development.
