Waitara Central School is a U3 decile 2 school with a current roll of 114 students. Due to an increase in enrolments we are looking for a fixed-term teacher to open a new entrant classroom starting on the 26th July and ending on 17th December 2021.

We are seeking a teacher who is passionate about juniors and has an understanding or willingness to provide a culturally responsive teaching programme, and has the skills and expertise to join our team. A forward thinking, collaborative, knowledgeable practitioner will fit perfectly into our school. 

If this sounds like you, we would love to arrange a meeting.

 Skills and experience 

  • We seek a teacher who is collaborative, positive and who enjoys high levels of accountability in a well-organised environment
  • We do not run a play based environment but cater for learning through play with our Discovery programme. We seek a teacher who has sound routines and classroom management in a new entrant setting. A teacher who has systems and structure that children can easily follow, will be an ideal applicant
  • Willingness to undertake professional development is critical. We like to stay abreast of best practice
  • Ability to plan and evaluate collaboratively with your team is critically important.

We believe in treaty partnership and we are working hard on improving and sustaining cultural responsiveness. It would be considered an advantage if you could add to our journey here.

Other benefits include :

  • Supportive, caring and collegial staff
  • Excellent professional development opportunities.  

Experienced and progressive leadership. We will support sound innovation and creativity.  This is a place where you could make your mark.
