A fantastic opportunity to join our amazing two-class rural school in Whataroa, South Westland. 30km north of Franz Josef, this area is a playground for adults, and the position would suit someone with a love of the outdoors who would make the most of our location. 

We are looking for a New Zealand registered teacher who wants to further their own professional development. If you have a positive mindset and attitude towards student learning, we want to hear from you.

The position is 0.6 in the first instance, with some opportunity to increase hours with additional release teaching and some 'in-school support' hours. We offer small multi-year class sizes, a large school field, swimming pool, playgrounds, positive student behaviour and access to a nine-hole golf course. 

Whataroa School is looking for a NZ registered teacher who is interested in raising student achievement, wants to be a part of our unique Local Curriculum, and will give 100% to all our students.  If you are a self-motivated and innovative teacher, come join our team!

Start date open to negotiation - the best possible date for the right candidate.
