We are seeking a primary teacher for our small (currently nine student) Y1–4 class at our area school. We are situated in a rural service town situated in the beautiful East Coast, ninety minutes north of Gisborne.

Ngata Memorial College is a long-established school located in the heart of Ngati Porou, Ruatoria. Most of the students affiliate to the iwi although our current teaching  staff come from  the East Coast and overseas. We  are developing  a vibrant Local Curriculum with a strong aspirational flavour. Our school has a supportive family-like atmosphere. School accommodation, consisting of either two bedroom flats or three bedroom houses,  is available at a subsidised rate.

We are excited at the opportunity to recruit an enthusiastic and innovative teacher with great interpersonal and teaching skills. The successful applicant must be passionate about children, lifting their learning achievement and enhancing their well-being.

Our teachers receive both the isolation and the High Priority Teacher Supply Allowances. A beginning teacher has the opportunity to be ‘bonded’ whilst a suitably experienced teacher may be awarded  an MU.

The flavour of our school can be gained via our Facebook page at: “Ngata Memorial College-Official Site”. Additionally there is an article on our school in the Education Gazette at:
