We are a Y1–8 primary school located just outside Oamaru, in North Otago. Our school is set in beautiful grounds with a rural backdrop. Our students are given every opportunity to be the best that they can be. Our school has a welcoming atmosphere and a strong community feel. We offer all the benefits of a country school (multi level classes, small class sizes meaning more teacher time per student, differentiated learning to cater for specific needs, friendly supportive community, space) whilst still having the convenience of being only 10 minutes from the centre of bustling Oamaru.
Ideally, the successful candidate will be available from 1 February 2022 and:
Be NZ registered and qualified
Be an experienced teacher of Y4–6, who is innovative and enthusiastic
Be a visible and accessible member in our collaborative team
Be culturally responsive; a confident communicator, comfortable working with parents, whānau, hapū and iwi
Be a lifelong learner that is highly motivated, enthusiastic, inspiring and professional
Love students and have a focus on leading learning that encourages innovation in a modern and digital learning age.
We are entering an exciting period of change as we are advertising for a new principal, who will also ideally start in term 1, 2021. We are seeking a school leader who is visionary and collaborative, with an approach that will help our staff and students grow.
