Pouto School Northland

Teaching principal

Primary and intermediate (Years 1–8) / kura tuatahi, Principal

Listed 2:38 PM 14 July 2017
Closes 4pm 29 July 2017
Vacancy reference #: 1H9dbZ

A U1 school 45 minutes south of Dargaville on the northern Kaipara peninsula.  

A small rural school. We are seeking an energetic, teaching principal with exemplary classroom practice, who is future-focused, competent and confident with digital learning tools. Excellent curriculum and pedagogical knowledge is vital to ensure the best quality education is delivered to all students.

Experience in leadership and management preferred but this could also be your opportunity to step up into leadership. However we do want a person with excellent communication skills and ability to foster relationships with students, whānau, board and community.

The school is resourced with iPads and notebooks, but we are keen to provide our students with greater digital learning opportinities and expect to provide this through becoming a part of the Manaiakalani Outreach programme through the CoL, of which we are a member.

A level of te reo Māori would be our ideal but a willingness to learn alongside our students in developing their reo is important for our community.

Our roll is currently 22 students and is staffed at 1.3FTT and supported by a teacher aide, admin assistant and a very supportive BOT. 

Waikaretu is our marae and they are supportive of the school and eager to develop a closer realtionship with the school and its students.

The school is set in a great area with a wide variety of outdoor activities including surfing, fishing, walking, cycling and motorbike trails.

Travel from Dargaville each day or a school house is available on site.
