Taipa Area School, deeply rooted in Ngāti Kahu history, seeks a committed Year 9 Permanent Homeroom Teacher to join our vibrant team. The role involves teaching NZC Mathematics, Reading, Writing, and Social Sciences.

Candidates should have a sound understanding of the NZC and a track record of boosting student achievement.
