Teacher Aide Vacancy – Permanent, Term time only

Kimi Ora School is a school for high/very high needs students aged 5-21.  Our main school is based in Naenae with other satellite locations in the Wellington and Lower Hutt region.

We are currently looking for an enthusiastic teacher aide to work with our primary age students aged 5 years to 13 years old in a satellite based environment located in within a primary school in Lower Hutt.

This will be a permanent Teacher Aide position working 27.5 hours – 30 hours, 5 days/week during term time only.

Our teacher aides work within our transdisciplinary team which includes teachers and therapists.
