I'm also wondering if there is a requirement for a certain religious denomination?

Judging from the email name I am guessing, a Christian school; but I doubt the requirements include a faith affiliation.

Kelapa Gading, my old stomping grounds. Every time I see an ad for teachers, I get the urge to send in an application. Being an educator on the international circuit is a fun and rewarding career choice, even where the salary is too small to be posted as an inducement to apply.

Definitely Catholic.

Of course it's very iffy to require a certain religion esp. in western eyes, but don't think for a second an Islamic school here would hire a female teacher without hijab. That's the society we live in here, even if it's a thin line between realistic respect and bigotry.

So I do think -considering the whole situation- there is nothing wrong with putting these requirements in writing. Better than wasting everybody's time. (I'm making this remark since I know a Muslim girl here who is a Bachelor in English and who might be interested in another teaching position.)

Back in Australia, religious schools have an exemption to anti-discrimination legislation so that they can hire teachers along faith lines.

For example, I know that many Catholic schools seek a recommendation from the local clergy (where a candidate lives) for prospective teachers. I don't imagine that it would prevent them from hiring an excellent candidate, but if it came down to the deciding factor between two equally-positioned candidates, I think it's clear which would be preferred.

The point you've made about Islamic schools is equally valid in Australia - i.e. it won't happen there either. This was an interesting case from Adelaide from a few years ago. It shows that non-Muslim staff were employed at an Islamic school, but were still required to dress 'modestly' by covering their hair with a scarf. Controversy ensued when the requirement was changed from scarf to hijab and the staff member was threatened with dismissal if she didn't comply. Though I'm not sure how it all turned out in the end.

When I was looking for the link to the article, I found a similar case from the UK. Both from 2013, so maybe there was a broader issue at play that year?
