Greymouth High School West Coast

Kaiako Māori

Secondary (Years 7–15) / wharekura, Certificated teacher

Te reo Māori

  Suitable for beginning teachers
Listed 9:51 AM 14 November 2019
Closes 5pm 27 November 2019
Vacancy reference #: 1HA2TM

Due to a rapid growth in interest in te reo and tikanga Māori from our students, and the start of a Māori pathway from 2020, we are looking for a second kaiako Māori to be part of a small team capable of developing curriculum and culture alongside our current kaiako. This role could suit a beginning or experienced kaiako and it would be amazing, but not essential, if kapa haka was your thing.

Great things about this role include being part of a team, having the potential to develop exciting pathways for our community, professional development support and having a beautiful whare to work from. There are also financial benefits related to us being 'hard to staff'. Challenges include having a low base of te reo Māori in our community to build from and not being able to teach Māori full-time yet – another subject would need to be taught for this to be a full-time role.

We are the only school serving the entire Māwhera / Grey District community and are part of Māwhera Kāhui Ako as well as a Manaiakalani Outreach programme cluster. We are a PB4L and restorative school with a focus on inclusion of our socioeconomically diverse community. This position includes the high priority staffing allowance which also supports relocation costs.
