Dear Mr. Keating,
Re: JOB APPLICATION
I am writing to seeking the advertised position of Assistant Principal at Mackillop College, Port Macquarie. For a long time, I have been passionately devoted toward promoting well-being in education and am thrilled to see that your college is committed to the betterment of young people and the many aspects that serve them. I believe I can offer you a tremendous amount of expertise in human resources management, educational leadership, and student/staff well-being with over 23 years of leadership experience in Catholic Education along with substantial postgraduate degrees.
I have taught Religious Education, Music, Drama, Remedial English, IT, Special Needs, Physical Education, Health, Pastoral Care Program (Student Welfare), Careers Education, Vocational Studies and coordinated many aspects of these programs for many years. I have also coordinated the staff professional development for ESO and teaching staff and served as Deputy Principal at Goldfields Baptist College. My senior leadership experience includes roles related to physical infrastructure and resources, timetabling, budgeting, financial management, staff development, and staff appraisal. During this time, I was also involved in policy writing and implementation, staff and curriculum handbook development, behavior and welfare management, liaising with community groups, educational organizations and the general community at large and staff / student management of well-being.
As a current Pastoral Leader at Good Shepherd Catholic College, I am involved in several programs related to the promotion of well-being. My experience and research have all proven to me the need for curriculum and program development that emphasizes well-being factors. I am eager to apply my visionary leadership skills to support St. Mary's score values.
I will be honored if you could review my enclosed resume and application so that we can explore the many possibilities of promoting well-being and pastoral care in your college. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss this position with you further in person.
Yours in Christ,
Mr. Phil Schipp B.A.B.Ed.M.Ed.Grad.Cert.M.A.C.E.

MY SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY
I have always believed that school education must be designed to meet the individual needs of the students as they grow to know more about themselves and the world around them. The process needs to recognize that students experience distinct developmental stages; it should build on and extend the development of skills and processes that are essential for effective learning. Through effective schooling, a student should be empowered to take more responsibility for their learning in a program that offers relevance, flexibility, participation and challenge to make sense of the world and their place within it.
Students have a range of personal, spiritual, intellectual and social needs. They have particular physical, emotional and cultural needs that should also be addressed. The very existence of the education process should be contained by the boundaries of our common faith, which guides us for the future and gives meaning and reason when students are developing relationships, experiencing new curriculum, establishing standards of behavior and finding their place in this world. The education process should provide opportunities for young adolescents to learn and grow in ways that acknowledge and respect this unique and special phase of their development. The school should help and demonstrate to the students through example and personal witness to make sense of creation under the clear guidance of the Word of God. It must also encourage them to make use of and develop their talents that they have been blessed with by God for the service of all and in tribute to God by promoting Jesus' reign on earth. An effective school education should address the following specific needs:
Exploring how social and cultural groups while immersed in a Christian community whose common belief that God's word permeates all that we are shaped individually; and group identities.
Developing productive relationships with adults and peers in an environment that respect difference and diversity while recognizing that the Bible is the basis of all true knowledge that we can draw upon.
Establishing avenues to promote learning useful presently and in future while enhancing the learning of God's word
Handling global issues in a critical, independent, and responsible perspective
Providing opportunities for the students to learn valued knowledge and skills besides using their talent for the benefit os the society.
Ensuring that the students can put their knowledge into practice in constructive and honest feedback are promoted
Addressing issues of bullying, discrimination, and harassment
Schooling is effective when based on a shared philosophy of fundamental values and beliefs. These years… [END OF PREVIEW]
