We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced, passionate and innovative teacher to teach and grow te reo Māori in our school. With a strong track record of providing engaging learning and ensuring every student succeeds, you will be able to teach te reo to students from Y7 up to NCEA Level 3. In your application please include details of additional subjects you are able to teach, to what level and your experience. There may be an opportunity for leadership if you have relevant experience.

This role encompasses the pastoral care of our Māori ākonga and ideally you will have a passion for kapa haka. The successful applicant will be able to build strong connections with whānau and local iwi.

Working collaboratively with other teachers in our school, you will have the ability to support our staff in understanding of Māori tikanga. You must be committed to raising Māori achievement and restorative practices and contribute to the extracurricular life of our school.

Our school is situated in a semirural community that is experiencing significant growth. We are within easy commuting distance of South Auckland and Hamilton, and we are just 5 minutes from SH1. The highway near us is currently being upgraded which will speed up journeys to local towns and cities once it has been completed.
