Calling all intrepid primary school teachers! Whether you are a returning Kiwi or an adventurous offshore trained primary teacher, here is your opportunity to work in a fresh, vibrant and modern South Auckland primary school. This full time, 12 month fixed-term position may well become a permanent position in 2020 for the successful candidate. You will be situated in one of the world’s most liveable cities. Flanked by the ocean, surrounded by stunning beaches and infused with semi-tropical bush, Auckland boasts a vivacious city-life experience just a stone’s throw from the wild outdoors…

Kauri Flats School opened at the beginning of 2017 as a new purpose built facility with integrated/collaborative learning spaces and has been steadily developing ever since. They have an Unrelenting Curiosity for Learning and are passionate about embracing and championing the diverse cultures, values and beliefs of their students and staff. They have been commended by the Education Review Office (equivalent of OFSTED) for planning “strategically to develop a school culture that supports students to be socially aware and academically successful.” Trust, respect, empathy and courage underpin the school’s belief system and they are dedicated to fostering a positive culture of growth, development and reflective practice throughout the school.

Kauri Flats School is developing a curriculum inspired by the fundamentals of the Reggio Emilia philosophy that ensures their students leave the school with a sense of curiosity, wonder, drive and passion for learning. The school’s unique balance between academic achievement and holistic, pastoral care creates a nurturing and modern learning environment. The staff are enthusiastic and committed in their approach and have access to a wide range of resources, including technology, that is easily accessible at all times and regularly maintained and upgraded.

The school is situated in Papakura, South Auckland and sits directly opposite a beautiful sports park. It is close to city bus routes, rail links, the Southern Motorway and is a 30 minute drive from the CBD. This laid back, semi-rural area would suit a young family or someone looking for a relaxed lifestyle whilst still being a stone’s throw from all amenities. And if you do have children between the ages of 5 and 12, they would also have the pleasure of joining this excellent, well-resourced school!

You may be eligible for a $5000 overseas relocation grant from the Ministry of Education if you take up a teaching position in New Zealand before the 1 July 2019. Now is a great time to come and teach in Aotearoa!
