Our primary school in Hawke’s Bay has a special relationship with the Anglican Parish that founded the school in 1995. With a roll of 130 students, we celebrate our diversity. Our roll includes 20% Māori, 13% Pacific, 30% Indian, and 28% NZ European along with 2 international students. The school has a committed staff and supportive Board of Trustees and proprietors.

Our current principal is leaving after 14 years of dedicated service. We are seeking a person with team leadership or senior management experience in a school, who:

  • Has the ability to build positive relationships across the whole school community
  • Demonstrates proven experience in improving student achievement across a range of learning needs and abilities
  • Leads and cares for staff, and utilises their expertise
  • Values diversity, demonstrates cultural competence and has a strong focus on parity of achievement for all children.

Our new principal should be willing and able to champion the special character of our school as a Parish-based Christian school in the Anglican tradition, while being inclusive and welcoming of other faiths within our school community. This is a tagged position, and a willingness and ability to take part in religious instruction appropriate to the school shall be a condition of appointment.

A commencement date will be negotiated with the successful applicant, but would ideally be during term 4.
