Kalamunda Primary Education Support Centre (ESC) is seeking to appoint a hardworking and motivated Speech and Language Specialist to join our friendly and supportive team.

At KP ESC we share our site with Kalamunda Primary School and are surrounded by magnificent Nature-play spaces and bush land. We are a growing, small school for students with disabilities.
