Owhango School Manawatu/Whanganui

Y5–6 classroom teacher

Primary and intermediate (Years 1–8) / kura tuatahi, Certificated teacher

English, Mathematics and statistics

  Suitable for beginning teachers
Listed 12:11 PM 04 November 2019
Closes 3pm 18 November 2019
Vacancy reference #: 1HA1nA

Due to roll growth, the BOT are funding a third teacher to work at our school with the Y5–6 children, 9am–12:30pm, 5 days a week. There are currently 17 children in this age group. The teacher will work on the core subjects of reading, writing and mathematics.  

We are a 3-teacher village school with excellent community support and a positive learning environment. We have a school swimming pool, playing fields surrounded by a beautiful native tree bounded domain, the Whakapapa river and DOC reserve nearby and Mt Ruapehu or Lake Taupo a short drive away.

We use the PB4L behaviour management system with a strong emphasis on positive interactions and a caring, collaborative approach to the well-being of all our charges.

The successful applicant would need strengths across the curriculum and we will gladly encourage your interests. Experience with teaching in a multilevel classroom with Y5–6 children would be an advantage but not a necessity.

Please note that this position will discontinue if we have a further roll growth and are funded for a third teacher to work full-time, however you would be encouraged to apply for this position.

If you would like to be part of our great team, we’d love to hear from you.

This appointment starts Tuesday 4 February 2020.
