We seek a vibrant, enthusiastic practitioner with a passion for innovative curriculum design and implementation to join our dynamic, forward-thinking secondary team at our school. 

You will enjoy our unique area school that received a $12 million complete new build. If you are a motivated professional keen to inspire our smaller classes, teach in the new purpose-built spaces, and enjoy the outdoors, this job is for you. 

We are located on the West Coast of the South Island between the magnificent Kahurangi National Park and the spectacular Tasman Sea. There are around 700 people in the district, and employment ranges from farming to self-employed people who make excellent use of the internet connectivity. Many families enjoy a lifestyle that many dream to live – self-sufficiency, strong community connections, and sharing skills and support. 

Having the ability to be flexible and open to teaching in other curriculum areas is an asset. Would you please tell us your areas of expertise and additional interests? In return, we offer: exceptional learners and friendly staff. Collaborative teaching opportunities with passionate, enthusiastic colleagues. A supportive and engaged school community. A clear vision for teaching and learning. A focus on personal wellbeing and positive educational learning programmes that connect learners to the environment. A national park and rugged coastlines, plus many walking tracks and nearby biking trails. Enviro-friendly rural lifestyle. 

Applicants must be fully conversant with the New Zealand Curriculum and be New Zealand registered teachers. There is an expectation that teachers may have to teach other subjects or help out with extra-curricular where possible. Applicants will be eligible for a rural allowance and may meet the criteria for paid removal.
