About Our School:
All Saints Catholic College is an important part of our SCS community.
As a co-educational K-12 dual campus, our College has been formed by the amalgamation in 2019 of the three All Saints’ schools and was incorporated into a single K-12 school entity on two sites, Liverpool and Casula, at the beginning of last year.
Whilst 2020 brought the dawn of a newly-named school community, Catholic education in the area has a long and rich history. Initially being overseen by the lay of the All Saints’ Parish, education changed with the introduction of the charisms of the Sisters of Charity and the Patrician Brothers. The community continues to be shaped by the work of these religious orders today.
We invite innovative educators to join our All Saints’ community on a part-time (0.6) temporary contract commencing in August 2021 and concluding in July 2022. The preferred applicant will demonstrate the following criteria:
