Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery is a special character area school based in central Christchurch. We have a fundamental tenet that the child is central in directing their own learning so that the enthusiasm and love of learning is retained. Our students value the choice, flexibility and respect that our style of education provides them.  

Our key values are whanaungatanga, kaha, aroha, whakaute and tiakitanga.

We are fortunate in being based in the central city, as this means that we have access to the resources and facilities that are available in the city. 

We are looking for a fixed-term, part-time music teacher to join our Y7–13 community. We are looking for a music teacher who has excellent relational practice and strong pedagogical knowledge. The successful candidate will be able to work in a flexible learning environment and have the confidence to support students to be self-directive in their learning. The successful candidate will be able to teach music up to a level that is required to support our Level Three students to gain an NCEA qualification. 

Please also state any supporting subjects in your covering letter.

We strongly advise you to come into the school for a tour before submitting an application as we are different to the majority of schools in Aotearoa. To organize a tour or ask questions about the position contact Anita Yarwood at
