Looking for a lifestyle change? Get to and from work in 5 minutes….. purposeful and prompt meetings, that are limited, allowing plenty of time to do your planning, and your own thing!!

We have an amazing opportunity available in the Primary end of our area school (Y1–13), 4 decile, 60% Māori. We are looking for a dedicated professional, who is flexible with what age level they teach, with the position beginning as soon as can be negotiated.

Area schools provide a unique and privileged insight into the growth and development of young people, from the age of 5 until early adulthood, and the opportunity to interact with a range of age groups.

Taihape is a beautiful town located on SH1 in a high country paradise of rivers, ranges, forests, farms, and mountains. Our 300 students come from a catchment roughly the size of Auckland, so there is a lot of wilderness, and many adventures, available.

Houses are affordable (there may be school housing available), you won't be stuck in traffic for hours each day, we have great cafes, and a wide range of recreational options available – including skiing, rafting/kayaking, hunting, tramping, a wide range of sports, and service groups. The school plays a huge role within the local community.

Class sizes are small, the buildings are modern, we are very well resourced, and our ERO Reports are positive.

If you occasionally need a bigger town, Palmerston North, Whanganui, Taupo, Napier, and Hastings are all within 1½–2 hours.
