We are an innovative and forward-thinking, decile 8 coeducational Y7–13 school located in Leeston, approximately 30 minutes south of Christchurch. With the announcement last year of a school redevelopment, this is an exciting time to join a progressive school and be a part of leading and designing change in New Zealand education.

We are seeking an innovative, adaptable and passionate teacher to teach a range of subjects in the middle school (Y7–10) between 20 July and 9 December. The subjects include English, social studies, physical education and technology and the position may suit a primary trained teacher. However, all applicants will be considered for their suitability to this position.

We are a restorative practices school and believe strongly in building and enhancing positive professional relationships with young people based on a pedagogical approach which is responsive to the cultural needs of students. All teachers are expected to be involved in our whānau system and will be supported to provide awhi and care for students and their learning.

Our school is community-focused and we encourage all staff to contribute to the varied learning opportunities that are offered to students in such an environment.
