Teachers coming into a new school environment need to have exceptional relational skills, be driven to build a positive, welcoming and supportive school culture and be willing and able to commit to the school's development and growth.

This is a unique opportunity and requires teachers focused on creating a culture where:

  • Listening to understand is highly valued. Sharing of knowledge and information and providing feedback are opportunities to learn and adapt.
  • Student voice cultivates and influences personalised teaching and learning.
  • Staff demonstrate intentionally inviting behaviours to create trust and maintain positive relationships.
  • Student, staff and school successes are valued and celebrated.
  • Vision, strategy and priority frameworks are agreed, communicated and acted upon.
  • Individuals demonstrate autonomy with accountability; their performance and achievements are transparent.
  • Coaching challenges and supports next step actions and solution finding through a balance of stretch and risk.

The vision for BSSSC is for it to be recognised nationally and internationally as innovative, inclusive and engaged in providing high quality, holistic learning environment for all students.
