Omakere School is looking for a 0.7 FTTE principal release teacher for our Y6–8 class of 16 young leaders. 

Omakere School is a creative and forward-thinking Enviroschool approximately 22km east of Waipawa and 45 minutes from Hastings in close proximity to three beautiful beaches. Omakere School encompasses a motivated and hard working team, supportive and involved school community, and capable, down-to-earth, and active young environmentalists! 

Our new principal release teacher will lead this class’ learning, use culturally-inclusive practices, enjoy having a voice and teaching to strengths, and collaborating towards a shared outcome - amazing teaching and learning experiences and opportunities for all! Experience with GAFE and a passion for the use of digital tools to design innovative solutions will be an advantage towards developing our own, and students, creative confidence! Our teaching and learning at our school is underpinned and overarched by our love for the environment and our passion for providing meaningful learning opportunities for each and every student. 

If you are interested in working in a school that focuses on providing a nurturing environment, where our tamariki are motivated to lead and learn through our our school values, we would like to hear from you.
