Murrayville Community College is a Prep to Year 12 school situated in an attractive setting in the rural township of Murrayville, close to the South Australian border in the north west of the state.  The College serves the town of Murrayville and the large surrounding area with a population in the order of 600 along with the district of Pinnaroo in South Australia, which has a population of around 1400.  The College forms an important part of the social and economic life of the town.  

The school is very well appointed and provides an excellent educational environment and resources for its students.  This includes state of the art facilities for teaching  VET Automotive, Design Technology, VCE/VET Agriculture and Horticulture.  There is ample space for cooperative teaching, 1:1 computer facilities and well-appointed classrooms, enhanced by interactive whiteboards.  

Grounds and recreational facilities are extensive, attractive and well maintained.  The school is fortunate to have quality and affordable teacher housing within walking distance.

The nearest primary school is at Pinnaroo, some 26 kilometres away in South Australia, from where there is an intake at the beginning of Year 8 each year. The current enrolment is 80 students.

Murrayville is located 110km west of Ouyen, 210km from Mildura, 565km from Melbourne and 276km from Adelaide, 16km inside the Victorian / South Australia border.  The area has traditionally been a wheat and sheep farming region and now has a diversified agricultural economic base through the use of artesian water.

There is an expanding interest in tourism with national parks located on both sides of the township.  Because of its unique geographic location the College has a strong self-sufficiency.  Cooperative effort, community involvement and commitment to community well-being mean that the College is a valued resource, with facilities and expertise shared within the community.

As a P-12 School, we operate the way a well-functioning family operates, with parents, teachers and students looking out for one another as they grow together in the freedom and safety only a unique community can offer its students.

Our students are constantly immersed in an environment that values communication, relationships and personal accomplishment.  

It is an environment that builds feedback into our work as we continuously increase our expectations of ourselves, in line with our motto of "PRIDE" which stands for Persistence, Respect, Independence, Determination & Excellence.  

At Murrayville we offer our young people a stimulating, connected and caring space to grow.  We pride ourselves on the way we expose students to learning that interests them, is varied and flexible, providing the direction and means to create true citizens of the world.

7.6 hours daily in line with the school's requirements; attend admin and facilities meetings; be "on call" for urgent facilities and teacher housing maintenance; where reqruied, oversee work sheduled in school holiday periods - time in lieu provisions apply for out of hours attendance.  

Range 3 is distinguished by the introduction of management responsibility and accountability for the delivery of professional support services. The role will usually impact beyond the work area or professional field. It seeks to gain cooperation of other staff members or members of the school community to achieve specific objectives, such as in school administration, operations or educational programs.

Direction on targets and goals is provided but the position will have some degree of latitude in determining how they are achieved. This latitude will generally be limited by standard procedures and school policy.  Deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.

The provision of business management responsibilities becomes a feature at range 3.  Management of staff to achieve the expected outcomes is a key responsibility.

Staff management issues will be resolved with minimal reference to senior management, although guidance will be required in more complex cases.  Senior management will be provided with timely reports and advice, although this will generally be confined to matters relating to the immediate work area, service provision or educational program and is unlikely to impact substantially on whole of school operations.

This is the minimum range for positions that carry a mandatory qualification requirement of not less than four years.  Professional student support positions become a feature at range 3 (e.g. therapists, psychologists) where standard professional services are delivered.  

Professional support and guidance will be close at hand and deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.

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.


  • Ensure the provision of a range of administrative support functions for the Principal and teaching staff.
  • Provide administrative support to external service providers as required.
  • Manage the processing of student admissions, registrations, enrolments and transfers.
  • Provide required level of administrative support for school events, functions and projects.
  • Implement induction programs for new staff, volunteers and other workers to the school.
