Seeking casual and/or, relief Boarding Supervisor work in Hobart

My name is Cheryl O’Meara and I am currently seeking casual and/or, relief Boarding Supervisor work in Hobart, to further broaden my experiences in working and caring for Upper Primary and Secondary students.

As a recently retired primary teacher of 45+ years; particularly of 12-13 year olds, and now tutor, I believe I am highly suited to a casual position at your school. References can be provided for my teaching experience and suitability as a Boarding Supervisor. 

I have recently completed my ‘Duty of Care’ workshops at St Michael’s Collegiate and feel that I understand the protocols, responsibilities and care that are required by the position.
I thoroughly enjoy the interaction that this age-group offers and as a teacher with a passion for pastoral care, and inclusiveness, I would be quite excited by the challenge and opportunity.

Whilst, I do own my home, I am seeking casual (residential if needed) position.  I would be interested in working anywhere between one and four shifts per week, either at night or over the weekend.
Please contact me at to discuss any employment opportunity you may be able to provide or to request further information. Thank you for your time in advance and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Seeking Gap Year Assistance, Term 1 2018

Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like to apply for the position as a gap year assistant. 

My name is Inga and I am from Germany. I passed the German school leaving qualification this summer (degree A-). My advanced courses were mathematics, educational science, English and German. I finished school a year early and will turn 18 at the end of October. That is why I am looking for a school assistant position starting in January 2018. Next September I want to begin studying at university in Germany to become an environmental engineer. 

For two years I participated in an additional qualification program called “Academy for Junior Managers”, in which we acquired fundamental knowledge of economics every Saturday. I completed my studies with distinction. 

At school I participated in a number of extracurricular activities: I was a member of the school health service and part of the catering team, which is responsible for our school’s cultural events. Furthermore, I was involved in organising the school’s church services. 

I give private mathematics and English lessons to 4 students and have a job as a babysitter for children aged 4 to 12 years old. I really enjoy working with children. Since both of my parents work full-time, I have been taking care of my younger brother after school.

When I was 14 I stayed in Canada for half a year as an exchange student. I love discovering and learning about new cultures and always treat them with respect.

Since I really like working with children of all ages I am looking for a job as a school assistant. I am open to assist the school staff with any kind of task, for example classroom assistance, tutoring, supervision, field trips and excursions. I will throw myself into all aspects of school life and will be positive, friendly and helpful to the staff and students I am working with. 
Therefore I hope you will give me the opportunity to work at your school.

I am able to stay in Australia from Janaury 2018 until August 2018. During this period I am flexible timewise. I could work at your school for the entire time or for a few months. 

If it is possible it would be great if you could provide accommodation.

I will gladly send you my CV and further documents and references and would be pleased to answer any questions you might have via email or Skype.
Please contact me via email at:

Thank you for considering my application. I am looking forward to hearing from you. 

Yours faithfully
