Oratia District School is unique in New Zealand in that it has a small side school with a special character of its own. On the Lone Kauri Road near Karekare Beach, Lone Kauri School is attached to the Oratia staffing schedule. Lone Kauri School is set in the bush and accessed through paddocks. It caters for about 30 students from Y0–6, under the direction of two teachers and part-time teacher aide. Our well-respected and long-standing senior teacher is leaving Lone Kauri School, so we are looking for a suitable replacement to start the new year in 2020.

Please provide evidence of skill and application in any of the following areas – te reo and tikanga Māori, digital technologies, performing arts, PE, inquiry learning. The students in this school are independent, curious learners with a love of the outdoors and a culture of care for each other.
