Due to roll growth we are looking for an intaking new entrant teacher. There could also be the opportunity for this to be a teaching role in an existing Y1 and 2 class. 

Commencing early term 2, 2023, by negotiation, we are seeking an inspiring, innovative, and child-centred teacher to teach in our collaborative and culturally sustaining school.

The position is with a new entrant class OR an existing Y1–2 class.

Our school is a U5 school with a roll of 370 set in park-like grounds 5 minutes from Cambridge and 15 minutes from Hamilton.

The teacher we are looking for will be able to:

  • Build effective, warm and culturally responsive learning relationships with learners, their whānau and staff
  • Engage learners through relevant, innovative and high quality classroom management
  • Use effective formative assessment strategies to plan and deliver programmes that meet the needs of all learners
  • Work collegially and collaboratively.

An understanding of, and ability to teach, literacy with a scope and sequence approach would be an advantage and we can provide high quality professional learning opportunities in this area.

We offer a great teaching and learning environment with curious, caring and connected children. We have a fun and supportive team environment with rich opportunities for professional growth and development, and seriously great coffee!
