Situated 40 minutes from Nelson, 50 minutes from Blenheim on the state highway and at the gateway to the Marlborough Sounds, our school is ideally situated to take advantage of the sunny climate and outdoor environment.

We seek a strong but flexible leader who will continue to build on the success of our PB4L school and the achievements of our 100+ students.

The ideal person will be able to cope with the challenges of a diverse student body and bring together the following resources to ensure seamless, quality education from Y1–13 for all students:

  • The expertise of primary and secondary staff
  • The input of parents
  • The goodwill of community.

Our current principal is retiring having enhanced the quality of all aspects of school operations, built strong IT capacity and developed sound systems which will enable a new principal to take the school forward.

Position commences term 3.

Our focus is to promote literacy/numeracy in the primary school through exciting classroom programmes and expand the horizons of senior students by providing opportunities for experiences outside the valley.

Our buildings and grounds are well cared for by a dedicated staff of caretaker, cleaners and gardeners – we are proud of how our school looks.

Our school is actively seeking to provide our students with the very best education available while expecting them to achieve to their highest potential. Our recent ERO report indicated we do this and our current staff, principal and board work hard to ensure Rai students get what they deserve – a high quality education in a rural setting.

A wonderful opportunity to lead a wonderful school with a wonderful staff. School house available for the successful applicant and given the location opportunities abound for a new principal.

Re-advertised position. Previous applicants will be considered, no need to reapply.
