We are a Catholic Y1–6, modern, vibrant coeducational Kura Tuatahi nestled in the heart of Hokowhitu, Palmerston North. Our school is the hub of a richly diverse and active community, and is supported by a strong PTFA, Whānau Group, BOT and parish.

Our school grows young people who learn to 'live the truth' in a safe and inspirational environment, where everyone’s voice is heard. One of our teaching blocks has recently been modernised and further modernisation is in progress around the school. Our community has furnished the school with excellent facilities, including a pool, fitness track and sacred space, and additional support to cater for all of our students’ needs.

Our BOT, staff and community are looking for a new principal to continue to enhance the legacy of our kura. Our next principal will be a genuine witness to the faith, who champions and illuminates the Catholic character of the school, has proven innovation and leadership capacity, and respects and supports their staff. In order to encourage the flourishing relationship between the school, parish and community, our principal will be an active member of the local community and Cathedral of the Holy Spirit Parish.

We seek an approachable, positive educator who will carry and enrich our existing vision, while building inclusive, personalised, culturally sensitive relationships with all of our students and whānau.

Confidence in the scope and implementation of Te Tiriti O Waitangi is an expectation. A willingness and ability to participate in religious instruction appropriate to the special character of the school is a condition of appointment.

Beginning term 2, or by negotiation.
