“ Poipoia te kākano kia puāwai”
“Nurture the seed and it will blossom.”

Our much loved Kaiako of 6 years has moved on in her career. Are you the new Kaiako for us?
We are seeking an enthusiastic, energetic, high-calibre kaiako to teach in our Maori class, Ngā Muka, Y3–6. A strong level of te reo Māori is required along with knowledge of tikanga and a passion for teaching, including an ability to plan and teach.
The ideal candidate would show strengths in The New Zealand Curriculum, cultural responsiveness and whānau engagement. Warmth, understanding, aroha and connections to our community and whanau will also play a huge part in this role.
We are open to new ideas of how we can continue to shape the future of Ngā Muka.

  “Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro nōnā te ngahere.
    Ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga nōnā te ao.”
  “The bird that consumes the miro owns the forest
   The bird that consumes knowledge owns the world.”

We ask that you enclose your CV along with your NZ Teacher Registration details when responding to the advertisement. As the time frame is limited we will interview any appropriate applicants as soon as their CV arrives.
Our school is part of a Kahui Ako and welcomes teachers who are excited to collaborate across schools to achieve success for all learners.
