After 30 years of outstanding and dedicated service as the Principal of Rossbourne School, Mr Linden Hearn OAM will retire at the end of 2019. This has created an opportunity for an innovative educationalist to contribute to the future development of the school.
The School Council seeks to attract an exceptional leader and relationship builder who has significant experience in developing, implementing and evaluating programs for students who have found it difficult to adapt to the educational and social demands of mainstream education. With knowledge of contemporary trends in experiential learning the Principal will maintain current high standards of education.
Reporting to the Chair and the Rossbourne School Council the appointee will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills to manage the future direction of the school and play a key role in collaboration among specialist teachers, staff, students and families to steward the development of the personal independence of each student. The ideal candidate will display high energy and a practical approach to organisational planning, with demonstrated analytical and strategic thinking capabilities. Experience in a specialist education environment will be highly regarded.
