Are you interested in education at altitude with attitude? A number of exciting opportunities have arisen at our area school. We are looking for permanent, full-time teachers with any combination of science (biology, chemistry), social sciences, English, physical education, and business studies, with experience teaching NCEA Levels 1–3 a requirement.


Area schools provide a unique and privileged insight into the growth and development of young people, from the age of 5 until early adulthood, and the opportunity to interact with a range of age groups.


Taihape is a beautiful town located on SH1 in a high country paradise of rivers, ranges, forests, farms, and mountains. Our 260 students come from a catchment roughly the size of Auckland, so there is a lot of wilderness, and many adventures, available.


Houses are affordable, you won't be stuck in traffic for hours each day, we have great cafes, and a wide range of recreational options available – including skiing, rafting/kayaking, hunting, tramping, unlimited sporting options, and service groups. The school plays a huge role within the local community.


Class sizes are small, the buildings are modern, we are very well-resourced, and our ERO reports are positive.


If you occasionally need a bigger town or city, Palmerston North, Whanganui, Taupo, Napier, and Hastings are all within 1½–2 hours.


The positions start term 1, 2018.


We are an area school, Y1–13, decile 4, with 60% Māori. A PB4L school.
