Two Permanent Positions

We are seeking fully registered teachers who are passionate, enthusiastic and willing to explore innovative ways of learning and teaching. Beginning teachers or those who are either not fully registered or able to be fully registered by the end of this school year, will not be considered as neither position is suitable for such.
Both positions are in a Māori medium setting and therefore, successful applicants would need to have a good level of Te Reo Māori and be supportive of tikanga Māori programmes, pertaining to our local hapū and iwi. However any successful applicant may be required to work in a mainstream class in the future, and must be prepared to do so.
The successful applicants must be able to work collaboratively within a whānau-focussed environment. You will play a key role in the development of our localised curriculum and must be culturally responsive to the needs of our akonga.
