We are seeking to appoint a permanent team leader to join the Y3–4 team from the start of 2021.

In this stimulating role, you will lead a three teacher team. Our three Y3–4 teachers work collaboratively, planning and teaching together.

It would be advantageous to have had some experience in teaching in an FLE (Flexible Learning Environment) or in the Y3–4 area. You will need to be able to embrace collaborative teaching as the teachers in this syndicate team-teach continuously throughout the day and week. 

Key attributes of the successful candidate include:

  • A growth mindset.
  • Being able to lead from the front and back.
  • The passion and ability to promote learning.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • A commitment to the Treaty of Waitangi: te reo me tikanga Māori.
  • Having a strong interest in the students, their families and the community.
  • A proven ability to build and maintain effective relationships.
  • Being an energetic, contributing team player.

If you are motivated by the prospect of being a part of the Thorndon School team, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
