Looking for a lifestyle change? Get to and from work in 5 minutes…purposeful and prompt meetings, that are limited, allowing plenty of time to do your planning, and your own thing!! 

We have an amazing opportunity available at our school. We are looking for a Y7–8 teacher for the primary area of our school. As well as home room responsibilities we run a whole day options programme, an opportunity for you to teach an area of passion.

Area schools provide a unique and privileged insight into the growth and development of young people, from the age of 5 until early adulthood, and the opportunity to interact with a range of age groups. 

Taihape is a beautiful town located on SH1 in a high country paradise of rivers, ranges, forests, farms, and mountains. Our 300 students come from a catchment roughly the size of Auckland, so there is a lot of wilderness, and many adventures, available.

Houses are affordable, you won't be stuck in traffic for hours each day, we have great cafes, and a wide range of recreational options available – including skiing, rafting/kayaking, hunting, tramping, a wide range of sports, and service groups. The school plays a huge role within the local community. 

Class sizes are small, the buildings are modern, we are very well-resourced, and our ERO reports are positive.

If you occasionally need a bigger town, Palmerston North, Whanganui, Taupo, Napier, and Hastings are all within 1½–2 hours. 

Accommodation is available.

Start time negotiable.

We are an area school (Y1–13), a PB4L school, decile 4, 60% Māori.
