Title: Management Accountant

Company Name: Moreton Bay College

Vacancy: 1

Job Location: Brisbane, Bayside & Eastern Suburbs

Employment Status: Full Time

Management Accountant

ABOUT US
 
Moreton Bay College (MBC) and Moreton Bay Boys’ College (MBBC) are two separate P-12 single sex Uniting Church day schools. Governed by a Board and led by a single Executive Principal, each school retains its independent legal status, a single sex focus and its own personality and attributes.  However, both schools have significant strengths to offer the other and together have a unique market leading proposition in private school education for families on the Brisbane bayside just 15 kilometres from Brisbane city.
 
Moreton Bay College was established in 1901 as a school for girls from PP-12 and now supports an enrolment in excess of 1100 students.  The College has a strong philosophy of educating the whole person – body, mind, heart and spirit.  The focus on academic excellence underpinned by a rich and caring pastoral program serves as the foundation of the educational experience for the girls at the College.  This is coupled with a vibrant and strong co-curricular program across visual and performing arts, cultural activities and a wide range of sports.  With 116 years of history the College is well established with extensive libraries, sports complex, a state-of-the-art music and performance centre, an Olympic sized swimming pool and a chapel.  At the start of 2014 the College completed a state-of-the-art Science centre featuring 8 laboratories, a growth room and 4 experimental investigation rooms.
 
Moreton Bay Boys’ College was established in 2003 to provide a boys-only school that could replicate the culture and ethos of MBC and provide an equivalent educational experience for boys in the local area. As an International Baccalaureate World school, the College offers the great benefits of an internationally recognised approach to education. Our globally-focused syllabus helps boys connect with the world around them – managing, constructing and deconstructing knowledge and applying it to different contexts and experiences. Teachers use the Primary Years Program (PYP) and the Middle Years Program (MYP) of the International Baccalaureate to plan inquiry-based, differentiated units covering all aspects of the Australian Curriculum. Senior boys follow the QSA pathways with the majority of boys obtaining an OP.
