WAS seek a science teacher to work with our capable Y7–14 students. Having expertise in all the three specialist areas would be ideal, especially in physics. Other teaching strengths/life skills are always much appreciated in an area school environment. 

There are two other senior staff members who can support the teaching of Chemistry and Biology. WAS also has a part-time lab technician to support the full-time science teacher.

WAS has had an extremely capable science teacher for the last three years who has built up some good resources and has improved student knowledge across all areas of the science curriculum. Sadly, she is leaving to pursue other goals in life. She would be available to support you, for a small period of time, to get you started if required. 

Recently, WAS has had a fully upgraded science lab and multi-purpose built classrooms completed. The learning spaces are a dream for any science teacher!

We have small class sizes with a dedicated team and supportive BOT who work closely together in the best interests of all our tamariki. 

Upgraded school housing is available - can be shared or have a flat/house to yourself. Open to supporting you with relocating financial/travel support.

Western Southland is a hidden treasure with so much to achieve.

We look forward to hearing from you.
