Do you have what it takes to teach in paradise? We are looking for an energetic person with high standards and great teaching practices to move to Rarotonga. We have vacancies in our junior and senior syndicate, teaching composite classes of mixed ability.

Our classrooms:

  • We have a thriving preschool and 8 teaching classrooms covering years Y1–8
  • Classes of approximately 26 students, either in a straight year group or composite across 2 years
  • We have a dedicated learning support teacher, teacher aides attached to particular children and a good programme of parent helpers
  • Excellent routines and structure across the school.

Our new teacher:

  • We are seeking a highly effective, passionate and enthusiastic teacher
  • You should have experience teaching to a mixed ability class
  • You will have the desire to be part of our supportive and collaborative team who are focused on improving student achievement
  • You will be innovative, motivated, and full of energy! We focus on creating experiences that excite and engage our learners
  • We are a small island community, our resources are precious and somewhat scarce. You should relish the challenge of teaching your class with fewer supplies than you may be used to and intermittent internet!

Do you have what it takes? We have a great team culture here, where perseverance, fun and resilience are key. Please note salaries in Rarotonga are not in line with NZ and therefore you will be taking a pay cut to teach here!

All registered teachers are welcome to apply, we are looking to appoint for term 1, 2018, all applications will be reviewed when received. Please read and use the documents attached to our webpage in your application for this position. Please follow these as they will guide you and answer most questions.
