History with English

January 2017: Secondary History, Secondary English

As well as teaching IGCSE, junior secondary classes, we are always looking for staff who can bring a passion and energy for performing arts, music, sports, visual arts, science clubs, Model UN, Duke of Edinburgh awards.

Because we are a girls Boarding School, we especially welcome application from female teachers.

Because Banani also has an excellent primary school, and is a beautiful, outdoor, adventurous place for children, we also welcome applications from teachers with young families – as well as teaching jobs, we have other non-teaching roles that need filling, so can usually employ both parents.

Working at Banani, in brief:

Working at Banani School is essentially an act of service. Salaries are more than adequate to live well in Zambia, and teachers are given flights to and from Zambia at the start, mid-point and end of 3 year contracts.  Furnished housing is provided with all utilities given at a token cost. Furnishings are basic, but most families personalise their homes with additional pieces.  A small relocation allowance is given to help with this.  But life is simple at the school- electricity can be unreliable, there are local markets and basic grocery shops, but the supermarkets, cafes, cinemas, etc. are a 180+ minute return drive away and most people don’t feel like making the trip!

The school population is close, and we rely on each other for social, emotional and logistical support.  This brings us close, but needs a robust emotional constitution.  The needs of 120+ resident girls (academic programmes, sports, school shows, Model UN, arts, music, careers, tutoring etc.) means the school takes over our lives- it is enormously fulfilling and rewarding, but it is also exhausting, at times physically and emotionally draining, but almost invariably, every person who comes to work at (or grow-up in) the Banani School leaves with a deep love, affection and sense of great personal gratitude for having been part of the school and the lives of the students who pass through.

All lower secondary students do some of the books of the Junior Youth Empowerment programme.  Senior students do Ruhi Books 1 & 3 & 5.  All students give at least one afternoon a week doing out-reach community service -tutoring in rural schools, tutoring IT and Science practical to village children using the school facilities, environmental projects, doing what they can to enhance the lives of others in some modest way.

If you’re keen on joining the Banani community, please do not hesitate to send an up-to-date c.v. and letter of interest to the Vice Principal (via contact us). Thank you!
