Our Y7–13 coeducational college is seeking a vibrant educator who wants to work collaboratively to deliver innovative learning programmes which allow individuals to achieve their personal best.
We are looking for a teacher of science who is passionate about learning, embraces technology and uses culturally responsive pedagogies to deliver effective teaching.
Applicants should be able to teach up to NCEA Level 3, and be a NZ certificated teacher. A commitment to our PB4L ethos is mandatory. The successful applicant will also be encouraged to be involved in our extensive co-curricular programmes.
We are a small coeducational Y7–13 school in South Canterbury with a roll of approximately 300 – this means small classes and weekend access to the beautiful lakes and mountains of the Mackenzie Country. Being just 20 minutes north of Timaru leaves you the choice of rural or urban living.
Please state area of specialisation and any other teaching strengths.
