From July, the school is excited to offer 2 learning pathways under a ‘one school’ vision. Mahurangi Montessori Primary, which was established in 2009, will be relocating to Pakiri School to form the base for our new Montessori Pathway.

We are a small, progressive, semirural primary school, Y1–8. We are situated near world-class beaches and native bush with natural resources on our doorstep.

We are seeking a Montessori trained (6–12) and fully registered New Zealand teacher, or an international teacher who is eligible for registration by having a 3 or 4 year teaching degree as well as Montessori training, to lead our new Montessori Pathway. This is an exciting opportunity to revolutionise how the Montessori Pedagogy is integrated into a New Zealand state school under a collaborative partnership model.

To be successful in the role you will:

  • Have a passion for Montessori education and for working with children this age
  • Have high emotional intelligence: be adaptive, self-aware, empathetic, balanced, curious, gracious
  • Be highly collaborative
  • Be able to build positive relationships with our principal, board of trustees, staff, children, whānau and the wider community
  • Be organised and self-driven
  • Be committed to nurturing the growth, development and independence of our children.

You will be part of a team that is passionate about delivering a new Montessori Pathway with plenty of professional development opportunities and a supportive environment.

Montessori qualifications are preferred, but should you have a willing ‘Montessori heart’ and be prepared to commit to Montessori training, then we would also like to hear from you.
