This week we have had the pleasure of meeting potential new members of the Annesley team for 2023! A number of students formed a student panel (see photo below) and met candidates to ask them some prepared questions and gave valuable feedback about each potential new Annesley teacher.
Their questions included:
- Why do you want to teach at Annesley over another school?
- If a child wasn’t doing well at their learning, how would you help them?
- What is your favourite sport?
- How do you make learning fun?
Our recruitment for 2023 is to respond to our continued growth and expansion in cohorts across the Primary School, but also to replace two much-loved members of our teaching team.
Brad Sheridan next year is moving to Queensland with his family and has already won a position at John Paul College in Brisbane. Sandi Grimmett has been appointed to a teaching role at Hills Christian Community School in Verdun and while she has loved teaching at Annesley, she has sought a school where she can engage in daily Christian devotions with students and staff. Both Brad and Sandi leave with our best wishes and deep gratitude for their contribution to our community.
Janine Baker, a member of our Personalised Learning Team has resigned due to personal circumstances. We thank her for the significant contribution she has made to supporting our learners at Annesley.
We attract outstanding teachers at Annesley due to our standing in the professional sector for leading progressive education. While human resources are the most valuable asset to any organisation, our team are a clear strength in our offering at Annesley. The quality of staff and effective collaboration in our team offers a level of high level of quality assurance to our students and families. I am proud to have any of our teaching team teach my three children.
