Are you interested in education at altitude with attitude? We are looking for a junior teacher – likely to be Y2–3. This position is for 2018.
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 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 1.5 to 2 hours.
This is a wonderful lifestyle opportunity.
