Secondary (Years 7–15) / wharekura, Middle leadership 

Mathematics and statistics
2MU + 1MMA

We are seeking a knowledgeable and passionate teacher who is confident in delivering the NCEA Level 2 and Level 3 mathematics with statistics and calculus curricula to small classes of cooperative and motivated learners in 2019.

You would be leading a well-resourced, hard-working and very supportive department which has built a culture where there is a high uptake of mathematics into the senior school and teaching is tailored to meet individual learning needs.

The ability to build positive relationships with both the learners and colleagues, genuine enthusiasm for the subject, a strong work ethic and responsive pedagogy are the key attributes we are looking for in applicants.

The department has been very ably led by the current HOD and excellent programmes and systems are already in place so the transition  for the new acting HOD would be a smooth one.

We are a very high-performing small rural college with fantastic active students and an extremely supportive community, set in picturesque West Otago, approximately half-way between Dunedin and Queenstown.

We are a PB4L school and pride ourselves on our respectful, responsible and inclusive culture. All students are encouraged and supported to participate in a wide range of sporting, cultural and leadership opportunities including the Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Awards programme.

Good quality accommodation is available.
