Are you looking for a challenge? This is a unique opportunity for a special experience!

Our 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 is a one-room school that caters for up to 30 students from Y0–6, under the direction of 2 teachers and a part-time teacher aide.

Our well-respected and longstanding senior teacher has left Lone Kauri School, so we are looking for a suitable replacement. 

This position calls for an experienced teacher with a broad understanding of the NZ Curriculum and an ability to cater for multiple levels within the same class. Strong communication skills are necessary alongside the skill to build collegial relationships with work colleagues. It is important that the successful candidate can honour the traditions and history of this unique school while also leveraging modern technology and teaching practices to provide opportunities for success for all students. 

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.
