Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery is a special character area school based in central Christchurch. We have a fundamental tenet that the child is central in directing their own learning so that the enthusiasm and love of learning is retained. Our students value the choice, flexibility and respect that our style of education provides them.  

Our key values are whanaungatanga, kaha, aroha, whakaute and tiakitanga.

We are fortunate in being based in the central city, as this means that we have access to the resources and facilities that are available in the city. 

We are looking for an innovative, experienced and professionally qualified guidance counsellor to join our exceptional pastoral team. It is a busy role as we have 670 students from Y1–13 in our kura. The candidate must be a member of NZAC or similar organisation and hold a teaching qualification.
