Mai i te tihi o Maukatere ki te pūwaha o Rakahuri, te pā o Tuahiwi maranga mai!

Aroha ki te Tangata – Tuahiwi ki te Whai Ao! 

Are you looking for a new job, a change or a challenge, perhaps a step up in leadership?

Are you not looking but would love to come and work with us?

If you would like to work with an outstanding team, supportive whānau and gorgeous tamariki then look no further!

We are a small, semirural kura 25km north of Christchurch City nestled in the beautiful village of Tuahiwi and we are looking for a dynamic kaiako who loves to teach and learn. We are strongly connected to our marae and are guided by the tikanga and kawa of Ngāi Tūāhuriri.

You don’t need to be fluent in te reo Māori but you do need to be working on it and a growth mindset is essential. The lucky applicant will work in our Y5–6, Level 3 immersion classes beginning January 2020 in a fixed-term, 1 year role.

We’re a collaborative bunch, close to our community and we all work towards the same vision – Tuahiwi ki te whai ao! Although we are small in size we are big in heart. Our kura is vibrant, future-focused, trying new things and there is always something happening so be prepared to love your job!

If this sounds like you, tono mai.

Call our tumuaki if you want to kōrero: (021) 184 9344.
