Carinya Christian School is now receiving applications for the position of PDHPE Coordinator at our Tamworth school, commencing Term 1, 2016.

The Applicant

Applicants must be committed Christians of reformed evangelical persuasion and be suitably qualified to fill this important leadership role within the school.

The Position

The PDHPE Coordinator is expected to function as part of the school executive team and in that capacity, be proactive in determining and supporting policy and whole school development.

Core Responsibilities include:

  • the development and implementation of a clear, Christ centred perspective across the subject,
  • ensuring all curriculum, teaching programs and assessment procedures compliant with BOSTES requirements.
  • ensuring curriculum delivery is compliant with specific Carinya pedagogical perspectives and imperatives ( motivation/feedback/public recognition etc).
  • setting the quality of teaching strategies, classroom delivery, feedback, learning outcomes and academic standards in the faculty.
  • ensuring staff and student welfare.
  • overseeing reporting to parents by faculty staff

The School

Carinya Tamworth is a K to 12 co-educational school. The school has a strong academic profile and a broad sporting and extra curricular program. Over 350 families form part of the school community and more than 580 students are currently enrolled at the Tamworth school.

Carinya takes great delight in educating students for the real world, where initiative self discipline and commitment to the task are valued and prized. The school has a strong academic framework and an extensive extra curricular program including sport and music.  Students enjoy a challenging and focussed  Christ centred learning environment, where community is prized over competition and students are taught to be faithful with the abilities God has given them.

Years 7 to 12 continue to experience strong enrolment growth. With the Secondary student body growing, the School is undertaking a building program to expand facilities and ensure a high quality learning environment is available for all students.


Teachers at Carinya are employed under the Independent Schools NSW Standards Model (Teachers) Multi-Enterprise Agreement 2011 – 2014. This agreement provides above average benefits and career progression opportunities to all staff.

Professional development is an important priority of the school and two non-teaching weeks are set aside each year during student vacation for all staff to collectively participate in Curriculum and Professional development. Carinya Term Dates do not match NSW Public Schools and can be reviewed via the school website.

The Region

Tamworth is the main commercial hub of the expanding New England region of North West NSW, and is one of the 7 Evocities identified by the NSW government.

An Evocity is not a sea change, not a tree change but a CITY CHANGE. Living in an Evocity means less time commuting, working and stressing, and more time for your family to enjoy NSW’s beautiful natural surrounds.

As a regional Evocity, Tamworth offers residents a lower cost of living, strong career and business opportunities and enhanced lifestyle.

Help With Relocation

The School is able to contribute financially toward the relocation expenses incurred by suitable applicants and will seek to support the transition of any family into the school and the broader Tamworth community.

Hard copies are available on request from the Principal’s secretary (6762 0970).
