As a result of one of our kaiako taking maternity leave, we seek a fixed-term full-time teacher to teach Y5–6 in Auraki (Mainstream English) for employment up to 52 weeks to begin work from Monday 23 August.  Proficiency in English and te reo Māori are an advantage, to collaborative in full of the kura culture.

The kura adheres to Te Marautanga ā-kura o Te Teko and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa as planning contexts for our students, also as teaching and learning guidelines for them. We follow tikanga of Ngāti Awa ki Rangitaiki iwi in all student learning contexts, so they may be confident in tribal guideline, 'Tauaki te tū, Taiki te rere, Ōkōrero kia mau'.

Applicants should be able to complete all necessary paperwork such as planning, individual education plans and also be able to use various digital platforms utilised by teaching staff. The overriding premise of the kura is to work collaboratively to ensure each student learns. It is also expected throughout staff that collective effort ensures the saying, 'it takes a village to raise a child'.

Although the kura has two units – one being rumaki reo Māori and the other auraki reo Pākehā, there remains a united pursuit toward the future that will ensure student achievement is accelerated in preparation for the world beyond.
