Sadly, due to our amazing junior teacher relocating to another region, we have an amazing opportunity to join a fun, relaxed, professional team. We have an opening for a 0.8 teacher in our junior classroom (Y1-3).

  • We are a beautiful small rural primary school for Y1–8 tamariki.
  • We use a Structured Literacy approach, so experience in this would be favourable
  • We have two classrooms and 38 tamariki.
  • We are a very close knit community and whanaungatanga is the foundation of everything we do.
  • We have a special needs student in the class who is supported by a teacher aid. Experience with Downs Syndrome, Autism and ADHD would be highly valuable. 
  • We are an Enviro School and run the  Garden to Table programme and we value authentic learning experiences outside the classroom.
  • We are a FUN but professional team.
  • This is an amazing opportunity to those teachers who understand and believe that touching a child's heart with empathy and kindness is paramount BEFORE they can learn. "We reach them before we teach them"
  • We have very high expectations of behaviour and as a result, very low behavioural incidents.
  • Our tamariki are fortunate to have the 'Ka Ora Ka Ako' Free Lunch in Schools programme - cooked on site.
  • Teachers use PACT to assist OTJ's and reporting against the curriculum levels.
  • We have a continuous reporting cycle using the HERO Platform.
  • We raise chickens, we have guinea pigs, a class rabbit (giant flemish), a water dragon and the children all help in their care.

Don't miss this opportunity to join a team like no other!

Supportive, fun and we all hold the child at the forefront of everything we do. 

We live by our vision: "Growing Happy and Successful Learners"
