We are an area school Y1–13, decile 4, 60% Māori.

We are looking for a Y7–8 teacher for our growing primary school. This role will involve a homeroom class, as well as the opportunity to teach an area of passion or interest as part of our options programme. We are a Google school, and this is a digitally enhanced classroom.

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 300 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, a wide range of 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.

Accommodation is available.

Start time 22 January, 2020.

We are a PB4L school.
