Our school is excited to be in the position to employ a dynamic Te Ao Māori kaiako. The vast majority of our students whakapapa back to the iwi of Ngati Kahu. Our school vision clearly embraces our local history, culture and language. As a school we are committed to supporting students ‘to know who they are’. This position will be an opportunity to work collaboratively with teachers, whānau and students. There will be a significant teaching element to this role, while developing the capacity of teachers to reinforce and support Te Ao Māori in their lessons.  

Our school is on a cultural learning journey. Staff have been involved in a Ngati Kahu Histories learning programme during term 3 and have PLD with Te Hiku Orkro planned for terms 1–2, 2022. This is a great opportunity to enrich and develop our school who is committed to the Treaty of Waitangi.

Taipa is steeped in New Zealand history, and is a great place to be a teacher! During 2020 building work enhanced the school with 7 new teaching spaces and a full size gym. Our current building projects will add a further 12 classrooms to our school. Students now enjoy the view of the ocean from our new Ki o rahi field and skateboard park.
