Listed 9:01 AM 24 July 2020
Closes 9am 04 August 2020
Vacancy reference #: 1HA9Dx

Due to a staff member taking parental leave, we have a vacancy in our junior room as a principal release teacher. This position involves working with year 1 to 4 children, collaboratively with the teaching principal. You will be in the class, alternating two days one week then three days the next (0.5 in total). The position may last until near the end of term one 2022, but may be shortened if the teacher returns to her job- with 21 days notice as per the collective agreement. 

We are a village school with excellent community support and a positive learning environment.  We have a school swimming pool, playing fields surrounded by a beautiful native tree bounded domain, the Whakapapa river and DoC reserve nearby and Mt Ruapehu or Lake Taupo a short drive away.

We use the PB4L behaviour management system with a strong emphasis on positive interactions and a caring, collaborative approach to the well-being of all our charges.

The successful applicant would need strengths across the curriculum and we will gladly encourage your interests. Experience with teaching in a multi-level classroom would be an advantage but not a necessity. An understanding of teaching junior children is an advantage.

If you would like to be part of our great team, we’d love to hear from you.

These appointments start at the beginning of term 4, on Monday 12 October.
