A position has become available to join our dynamic and innovative Y7–8 team in the junior school. We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated, creative and committed teacher to join our staff at the beginning of the 2019 academic year.

We believe in the concept of ako and that we are all learners. The ability to develop and create flexible and ongoing assessment practices for students is essential as is the tracking and monitoring of student progress and acceleration. 

The college is an innovative and forward-thinking, decile 8, coeducational Y7–13 school located in Leeston, approximately 30 minutes south of Christchurch. Over the coming years there is expected significant roll growth, and with the possibility of a complete school rebuild in the near future, this is an exciting time to join a progressive school and be part of leading and designing change in New Zealand education. 

We are a PB4L school and are starting a journey around the implementation of restorative practices. We believe strongly in building and enhancing positive professional relationships with young people. Teachers are expected to be involved in our whānau system and will be supported to awhi and care for their whānau students. We are an active member of the Ngā Mātāpuna Kāhui Ako and currently in the process of appointing our within-school teacher positions, which may be of interest to prospective candidates.
