Wairoa primary principals are seeking applicants for 3 learning support coordinator (LSC) roles, as recently announced by the government. The LSC role is a non-teaching, full-time role, working with students, teachers, whānau and agencies to support the learning of our students. A role description for the LSCs as well as responses to Frequently Asked Questions outline the specific details of these exciting new positions.

They will also have strong working relationships with the LSC at Wairoa College and 6 early childhood centres. The LSCs will initially work to co-construct the wellbeing register to help determine areas of need and therefore possible combination of mahi across schools.
