Due to expansion we have opportunities for a part-time and relief teacher at our Cornwall Park site.

You will:

  • Have respectful communication skills
  • Engage with tamariki, kaiako and whānau in meaningful ways
  • Enjoy challenge and learning new skills and ideas and  value the outdoors
  • Undertake portfolios and programme planning to a high standard
  • Participate in outdoor nature-based ECE training programmes.
