Listed 9:18 AM 24 October 2019
Closes 3pm 07 November 2019
Vacancy reference #: 1HA16Q

Position commences January 2020.

  • Charter responsibilities could provide additional unit/s
  • We are also members of Te Kāhui Ako o Mangakootukutuku and our school generates 2 in-school positions which are advertised annually in school according to our identified needs.

We place the learner at the heart of all decisions that we make; mana mokopuna. Our people, our students, our employees, our board of trustees, our whānau, our extended friends are all worthy of aroha and belonging.  

Our Whakatauākī is 

Mā tātou anō tō mātou korowai e whatu.

We will weave our own korowai.

We use the metaphor of a korowai to explain our vision. We believe that each person (mokopuna) is born with their own korowai. Their korowai is embedded with their identity, their language, their culture, their stories passed down to them from their ancestors. When our students transition here we value and acknowledge their already-developing korowai. We feel incredibly privileged that we are then allowed as educators to stimulate and provide learning opportunities where each student can add new knowledge, new strategies, new skills, new feathers to their korowai. 

Our inclusive learning pedagogy is based on Hauora – where developing high trust relationships is critical for learning. Relationships in our learning community are based on our values. 

As a lead teacher of our junior school you will join our progressive leadership structure where we capitalise on individual personalities to strengthen our collective intelligence. Communication is modelled on autonomy and trust to develop cohesive teams. Roles and responsibilities within this job description will be reviewed annually. This review will be in response to identified student and school priorities aligned with the school's charter.
