Hanmer Springs School is seeking a passionate, innovative, and reflective teacher committed to providing high-quality learning experiences for our Y2 and 3 students with diverse learning needs.  

Hanmer Springs School is a co-educational full primary school. We are a small school of 96 students in the heart of Hanmer Springs, and our roll has been stable over the last several years. Well known for being an alpine resort, our town welcomes thousands of visitors, and our population of permanent residents is also projected to grow. 

We consulted with our staff, students and parents/whānau to assess what is important at our school and community. Based on this, a successful candidate will need to be:

  • Someone who shows honesty and integrity
  • Someone who is comfortable with change
  • Able to build learner curiosity and creativity
  • Able to contribute to our positive school culture by modelling our school values
  • Proficient in forming meaningful relationships and working as a team player
  • Kind, fair, and approachable
  • Innovative and collaborative toward helping our school strive for excellence
  • Adaptable and comfortable working in a rural community and small school
  • Highly organised and efficient.

Key to this role is the interaction with students, parents/whānau and other members of staff. We need someone who will have high expectations of our learners and build their curiosity and creativity. Our school and community is changing, and if you have experience with curious learners in a rural setting we would love to hear from you.
