An exciting opportunity has arisen within our well-resourced art department. We are seeking an innovative teacher of visual art who is adaptable, has a growth mindset and caters for diversity. This is a sole charge department, teaching from Y9–13. Courses include NCEA photography and painting.

With a roll of approximately 400 students, Waitaki Boys’ is ‘enriched by a proud heritage, but forward looking and progressive in our task of educating boys to meet the challenges of the new millennium.’ The school’s inclusive school culture encourages students to participate and achieve in a range of leadership, sporting, arts and cultural activities within and outside the classroom. The school vision is to develop ‘inspiring young men of outstanding character.’   

Oamaru is a growing and vibrant town of 15,000 people, in the Waitaki region of North Otago – located between Dunedin and Timaru (110km North of Dunedin). Not just known for its Victorian architecture and penguins the Waitaki District stretches from Te Moana nui-a-kiwa (Pacific Ocean) all the way up to Ka Tiritiri o te Moana (Southern Alps), meaning there is a wealth of adventures to be had throughout this picturesque area. Oamaru is not your standard regional township, with its own special character, and has all the amenities you could ever need (without the traffic jams or high cost of living).

The successful applicant must be a NZ registered teacher and will endorse the school’s academic focus, as well as be expected to be involved in our strong co-curricular programmes.

 Job description available upon request.
