We are seeking an excellent full-time permanent classroom practitioner to join our Science Faculty in late January 2018.  

As a school, we are committed to increasing the number of students who go on to degree-level study. Our school has gone through a period of significant improvement in the past 4 years and we are looking for a dedicated teacher who will continue the good work and build on our students’ successes.
Otahuhu College is a Y9–13 school in Auckland serving a largely Pacific Island and Maori population. Our students in many cases come from first or second-generation new families who moved to New Zealand for a better life and for better opportunities for their children.

The science position is for General science with a specialisation in either Chemistry or Physics. Otahuhu College has nine brand new science labs completed in 2016 so we provide excellent teaching facilities as well as a strong well-run department.  The faculty is well resourced with practical equipment and ably supported by our technicians.

Extra-curricular activities play a big part of the College and teachers new to New Zealand benefit greatly from getting involved in the many sporting and cultural activities Otahuhu College offers.
