TAS is a regional co-educational boarding and day school with a day Junior School (Transition to Year 5) and boarding and day Middle School (Years 6-8) and Senior School (9-12).
Armidale is Australia’s highest city, located on the New England tablelands about midway between Sydney and Brisbane. Home to Australia’s oldest regional university (the University of New England) it is an important centre of education, with agriculture being one of the main industries in the region.
TAS accepts Gap Assistants for 6 or 12 month (preferred) periods beginning in either late January (for Southern Hemisphere applicants) or July (Northern Hemisphere applicants).
GAP Assistants are offered accommodation, all meals during term time, a pay allowance, and other benefits including free membership to our indoor swim centre, gymnasium and weights room.
Gap duties will involve assisting staff in each of our schools, administration, in our Outdoor Education program, Creative Arts department, excursions, and sports coaching. Duties will vary each day and Gappies work alongside TAS staff in their roles.
You must ensure that you have health insurance for the duration of your stay at TAS. While Gap Assistants coming from the United Kingdom receive reciprocal rights to health insurance in Australia, additional cover is recommended.
