Listed 1:23 PM 18 October 2017
Closes 01 November 2017
Vacancy reference #: 1H9fV_

Our wonderful school in Rarotonga is seeking a head of ECE to start with us in January 2018 for a contract until the end of 2019. 

Our preschool is a small dedicated part of our full primary school which educates children from the age of 3 up to Y8.

As a qualified ECE teacher you will have excellent experience leading a small team and catering for the learning and care of our youngest students. The centre is currently running a roll of around 25.

Working in Rarotonga poses a unique set of challenges and we seek someone who has not only enthusiasm and energy on a daily basis, but also someone who can make much with little, resources are scarce and money not plentiful. You must be able to work in an environment of change.

You will be required to offer a fun, stimulating, play-based learning programme in line with the Cook Islands Curriculum.

Resilience and a can-do attitude are important, as are a sense of humour and a caring nature.

You are encouraged to apply early if you are interested.

Please note that while teaching in paradise clearly has many benefits, salaries are not in line with NZ and you will be expected to work hard on a lower salary than you will be used to.

How to apply

Please send your application, CV and direct enquiries to:

Lucy McDonald, Board Chair
