Are you an inspiring leader?

Norseman District High School (DHS) is seeking to appoint a dedicated and passionate Deputy Principal to join our friendly team.

You will ideally have a sound understanding of collaborative practices as well as the ability to work as a team member within a professional learning culture in order to achieve high educational outcomes for every student.

Norseman DHS is a Level 4 District High School catering for children from Kindergarten to Year 12. Our school is unique in that we have a population of children from interstate, other parts of WA, and the 'Norseman Locals' creating an environment that is rich in diversity and opportunities to learn from each other. The traditional owners the Ngadju people have a broad understanding of the land, a passionate culture and are wonderful supporters of the school.

Our relatively low student numbers allow our quality and passionate staff opportunities to individualise the curriculum to meet the childrens' needs. There is a wonderful balance of staff from beginning teachers to very experienced staff who very much value working collaboratively and put in a huge effort to deliver creative and inspirational lessons. The school boasts a strong ICT focus with iPads being used in all classes to develop 21st century learners. Our school bus is used frequently to offer a wide range of learning and sporting activities and opportunities for the children.
