Rivergum Christian College

Posted in SA


Rivergum Christian College is a small but growing school in South Australia's Riverland region, expanding into senior secondary in 2020. We are the Riverland’s only independent, non-denominational Christian school with combined primary and secondary students.

We approach education from a transformational viewpoint, desiring to support students by engaging in structured but diverse learning programs to build their capabilities. This is supplemented with strong accountability and responsibility in learning. We also appreciate the diverse range of learning styles among our students and want to encourage this individual thought and expression.

We are seeking an experienced Primary teacher who is eager to engage with students, celebrate their strengths and scaffold their learning from a Christian worldview. If you feel that this describes you and your passion for educating young people then we encourage you to apply for this position.

You will be working alongside of our Head of Primary and receive training in the programs used, along with allocated in-classroom ESO support.



The quality teacher we are looking for will be:

  • a Christian actively involved in the Christian church
  • dynamic, flexible and able to work collaboratively
  • able to teach creatively and 'outside the box'
  • able to empower students and encourage them on their learning journey
  • keen to work in partnership with families
  • willing to embrace and implement a student-centred, transformational methodology while promoting accountability and appropriate assessment standards
  • part of a small, dedicated staff team with a servant attitude
  • understanding and supportive of our transformational discipline approach.

Candidates will be short-listed for in-person panel interviews and some may be asked to complete a paid TRT day later in Term 4 to assist in finalising the application process.

The role is 1.0 FTE with above-award remuneration.
