Educator - energetic, curious, innovative

Our small rural school located in the beautiful Bay of Islands, within easy driving distance of Kerikeri, is seeking applications from energetic, curious, innovative teachers with a strong record of inquiry and learner-centred practice, to join our team.

We are proudly different in our approach to education and continue to seek learning strategies and environments that nurture curiosity, critical thinking and collaboration, honouring children as innately capable. 

The International Baccalaureate curriculum embedded in our school delivers a unique inquiry style of learning. Combined with our reverence to Te Ao Māori, this provides a holistic framework that fosters essential elements of knowledge, skills and attributes, supporting our children to thrive in a rapidly changing world.

Experience in the IB curriculum is not essential if this opportunity sounds inspiring to you. We are much more interested in your mindset, your energy and your strong commitment to a horizontal relationships based pedagogy. You want to inspire self aware, compassionate and adaptable young people to personal growth. A grounding in te reo and Tikanga Māori is highly desirable.

If this brief introduction describes you, and demands your attention, then we would love to hear from you. We also foresee future possibilities where a middle management role may be an opportunity.

This position starts at the end of January 2022 and could be become permanent.
