Suneden Specialist School

Suneden, South Australia’s first “specialist” school was founded in 1943.  This unique school underwent significant capital works in 2017 enhancing facilities and the ergonomic design of teaching spaces.  Continually striving to be at the forefront of specialist education, Suneden’s campus is a multi-disciplinary site catering for up to 70 students between the ages of 5-21 with intellectual and physical disabilities.

Incumbent Principal, Anne Martin, is departing the school after many years of exemplary service as both Teacher and Principal, creating a rare opportunity for a proven specialist educational leader to join this well established school known for its quality of care and strong curriculum.

Reporting to and working closely with the dedicated School Board, this pivotal role will take carriage of the strategic and operational leadership of the School.  The successful candidate will:

  • lead a school which continues to embrace new technology, contemporary teaching methods and innovative programs;
  • impart the vision and values necessary for Suneden to continue its influence within South Australia;
  • foster a team of dedicated and progressive professionals and a positive workplace;
  • manage the physical and financial resources and ensure sound governance.

Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified and experienced individuals with excellent communication, negotiation, leadership, strategic planning and commercial management skills, complemented by the warmth, integrity, authenticity, energy and passion necessary to engage with, champion and inspire the Suneden community.
