Runcorn State High School has partnered with Baseball QLD to deliver Baseball as a specialist sport within the school from 2019. As a result we are seeking a Health & Physical Education Teacher, with a passion for Baseball to undertake a temporary full time contract from Term 4 2018 until Term 4 2019, with the possibility of extension.

In 2019, Runcorn SHS will commence a Baseball Academy and the successful candidate will be developing and driving this Academy from the start.  The program will utilise Indians Baseball Club for the workout sessions, but there will also be curriculum attached to the program.  This program will be based off the successful Robina SHS program, however adapted to Runcorn’s demographic.  We are also looking to integrate an International Student Program with this program, linking Baseball players from Japan with an opportunity to play Baseball at High School in Australia.

If you would like any further information, please contact Jo Soothill (Principal – Runcorn SHS).

This is exciting for our sport in Queensland as our Queensland Schools Baseball committee look to increase the number of schools and students playing Baseball.

Please share this amongst your networks.  Job closes Sunday, 9th September

Together with Smithfield State High (Cairns) and Robina State High school there will now be three Schools of Baseball Excellence in Queensland.
