Are you interested in education at altitude with attitude? We are looking for a full-time permanent music and performing arts teacher for Y9–13. Additional strenghts in other curriculum areas, including English and mathematics, an advantage.


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 are available – including skiing, rafting/kayaking, hunting, tramping, unlimited sporting options, and service groups. The school plays a huge role within a dynamic 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. 


This is a wonderful lifestyle opportunity.


We are an area school (Y1–13) 4 decile, with 60% Māori. We are a PB4L School.


Position starts term 1, 2018.
