Are you a caring, community-focused, lifelong learner who strives, ever and always for higher and better things?

Due to the retirement of our highly respected current principal, we are seeking applications from experienced, innovative, inspiring leaders.

In terms of lifestyle it does not get much better than what we can offer you. Recreational opportunities abound and everything is at your doorstep – the mountain and the sea are only a stone’s throw apart.

South Taranaki is a district of unlimited potential. Wedged between the majestic Mount Taranaki and the Tasman Sea, it is blessed with an abundance of natural resources, spectacular scenery, a temperate climate and a rich cultural heritage. Along with all of this Taranaki was recently named the second top region in the world by Lonely Planet.

This is an exciting opportunity for the successful applicant to lead in an extremely well-resourced, future-focused school, with a passionate, committed staff and supportive community of learners.

Our school community seeks an experienced school leader who:

  • Has a strong focus on learner achievement and wellbeing
  • Has experience in developing curriculum in an innovative and future-focused learning environment
  • Has experience in a PB4L culture  
  • Is able to build real meaningful connections within the school community
  • Is fair and able to build supportive, lasting relationships with staff
  • Is a team player and values collaboration
  • Empowers and grows other leaders
  • Models being a learner
  • Has a willingness to support the South Taranaki Kāhui Ako
  • Has a commitment to biculturalism and will continue to promote and participate in our Culture Counts relationship-based learning journey.

K.A.H.A. Kotahitanga – getting on together; Ako – learning from each other; Hauora – feeling positive; Awhi – helping and supporting.
