We are looking for a forward-thinking, progressive and innovative, NZ registered teacher, to join our team in the position of learning leader – health and physical education (HOF). Teachers who have a real passion for developing our students into active and inspired lifelong learners, who have self-belief and a sense of belonging, are invited to apply. 

Strengths and/or a keen interest in outdoor education would also be an advantage.   

Our school is situated 20 minutes north of New Plymouth in Taranaki; a region that is unique, legendary and impressive and most importantly - like no other!  Mount Taranaki is an ever-present part of the landscape and home to walking and hiking trails, a ski field, cafes and accommodation. Beneath the mountain there is still more to discover, with Taranaki home to a wonderful climate; flourishing arts and music scene; some of the country’s best surf breaks and miles of unspoilt coastline.

Ideally we are looking for a teacher able to start at the beginning of term 1 2019, however, a flexible start date could be considered for the right candidate.
