Thank you for your interest in the 0.2 fixed-term teaching positions – Y0–2, Y3–4, Y5–6 (please state your preference). Positions may be combined.
We are located on the West Coast of the South Island between the magnificent Kahurangi National Park and the spectacular Tasman Sea. There are around 750 people in the district and employment ranges from farming to self-employed people who make excellent use of the internet connectivity. Many families enjoy a lifestyle that many dream to live – self-sufficiency, strong community connections, and a sharing of skills and support.
We are well serviced with a local medical centre, cafes, restaurants, local shop, information centre and a community-based petrol station. We have a local hairdresser, real estate agents and a daily transport service to Westport, that doubles as a rural delivery service. Local fresh produce is readily available. You have the ability to fish in the river and along the beach. Locals run interest-based groups like Art. People that enjoy fitness run “boot camps” and yoga. There are dance classes and many beautiful walking and mountain bike tracks.
We strongly advise that if you are interested in joining our team, that you research our location so that you are well informed. We are very proud of our school and area and we would like to share this gem with teachers who would feel the same way and who value the opportunities that this environment provides.
As we are a small area school, staff are required at times to teach at a variety of levels and/or subjects. This is one of the unique features of our school. There may be an opportunity for additional remuneration for additional responsibilities.
