WHAT DO OUR GRADUATES DO?
I am often asked, especially by prospective parents, what our graduates do. When I read this recent article in the Drum, I was delighted to see that it was written by one of our ex students, Eamon Waterford. Eamon was a K to 12 student at Korowal, who went on to UNSW and now works as the Policy and Advocacy Director of Youth Action, the peak body for youth affairs in NSW.

FLEXIBLE PART-TIME MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS ROLE AT KOROWAL
This is one of those opportunities that very rarely come up.
It is a marketing and communications role with a difference.
We are a unique K-12 school in the Blue Mountains, which excels in the creative and performing arts and was ranked 75th in the top 100 schools for 2013.
In a recent research project, the senior pupils described it as "the best school in the world". The parents said "they are amazed how much time and attention the pupils get”. The teachers said it is "education the way it should be taught"!
What we want to do is spread the word about how unique we are. We want to let the world's best educational secret become a little better known. Hence we are looking for someone to come and be a part of 'our family'. The person in this role would report to the Principal. Remuneration will be negotiated with the successful applicant.
This is the opportunity to create a greenfield marketing story - create the brand story, develop how and where it is to be communicated and guide the school's communication with the community.
If this opportunity sounds exciting to you, please submit your CV by Friday 14th Marcheither:by email to : firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to: The Principal at Korowal School, PO Box 561, Hazelbrook 2779
