Are you interested in education at altitude with attitude? An exciting opportunity has arisen at our school. We are looking for a Y5–6 teacher. Initially this is a fixed-term position, but with ongoing roll growth is very likely to become full-time.
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 280 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, sports, and service groups. The school plays a huge role within the 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, Palmerston North, Whanganui, Taupo, Napier, and Hastings are all within 1½–2 hours.
The position starts term 3.
We are an area school (Y1–13), decile 4, 60% Māori. We are a PB4L school.
