The large staff has a rare combination of experience, enthusiasm and commitment.

“Moving to a whole new town to start work with a whole new team was daunting. The way the staff welcomed me, supported me with work and involved me socially made the choice to live in Port Lincoln easy. I love living and working here.”

Being a member of staff at PLHS will allow you the opportunity to teach in your area of expertise and will also challenge you to expand your ability by working with a dedicated team in a social but committed setting.
