Our school is growing and we have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and passionate teacher to join our amazing team for the 2021 school year.

The position is likely to be somewhere in our senior syndicate – anywhere from Y4–8. However for the right applicant we do have flexibility for the position to be in our junior syndicate.

Seddon School has an incredibly supportive community, board, staff and parent group.  We have an inclusive school culture and pride ourselves on our proactive approach to well-being.  

We are looking for someone who:

  • Has a positive approach to behaviour management
  • Has a strong understanding of the NZ Curriculum and can bring it to life for our learners
  • Understands rural children and can relate to their lifestyle and experiences
  • Relates well to others and communicates clearly
  • Works collaboratively and takes being part of a team seriously
  • Has a great sense of humour.

If you have strengths in PE, IT or science this would be an advantage – but not necessary.

School visits are encouraged. Please contact the principal to organise this.
