We are a small rural school with 74 children currently on roll. This is an exciting time to join St Blaise, as we enter into a period of school expansion. We are proud of our school and all who work and learn here.  Your contribution and commitment will be part of our future.

*             good communication and interpersonal skills

*             a good sense of humour
