St Philomena School: Position of Deputy Principal for start of 2020

St Philomena School (30-minute drive from Brisbane) is a Prep to Year 12, Independent School run by the Society of St Pius X in Park Ridge, Queensland, since 1999. St Philomena School is going through a period of growth with current enrolments at 232, and this looks to continue in the years to come. To meet this growth, we are planning to introduce the position of Deputy Principal for the start of 2020 and we are now looking for applications to fill this role.

From its very beginning, St Philomena School has been dedicated to providing a Catholic education to its students. Our mission is to cooperate with divine grace for the formation of the true and perfect Christian. We want to see spiritually vigorous Catholic young men and women who are intelligent, cultured, healthy, vocationally prepared, social minded and patriotic, formed by a well-rounded education, leave our gates at the end of Year 12.

The position of Deputy Principal will take an important role in assisting the Principal to fulfil St Philomena School’s clear strategic plan over the next ten years. This plan seeks to continually improve and better deliver Catholic education according to the School’s classical education philosophy.

This important leadership position requires someone with considerable experience in education and leading other experienced and skilled educators. Applicants should have previously held a high-level leadership role in other schools, preferably a deputy principal or principal position.

Applications sent via email or post in the form of a cover letter and résumé should be submitted as soon as possible. Applicants should provide appropriate references.

Applications close 6:00 pm Monday, 7 October, 2019.
Position commences 1 January 2020.
