Situated in the heart of the Southern Alps, you will find our semi-rural primary school amongst magnificent mountains and crystal clear lakes and rivers. Hāwea Flat is a scenic 15 minute drive from Wanaka, making it an ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts. 

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced educator and proven leader to take the helm, as our current principal retires after more than 2 decades of exceptional leadership. Our school has and continues to experience significant roll growth.

At our school you will be surrounded by a dedicated team and welcomed by a supportive community, who live our shared vision of encouraging all learners to be the best they can be, as identified in our latest ERO report (June 2019). 

The Board of Trustees is looking to appoint a principal to start in term 1, 2020.

We require an educational leader who will: 

  • Have the experience to lead our school forward, with a distinct future focus on quality teaching and learning
  • Have the ability to develop genuine learning partnerships with all in our community
  • Have a strong vision for learning at Hāwea Flat that has student agency at its centre and fits with the unique and special culture that exists within our school and community.

A school house may be available if required.

Please make contact if you would like a copy of the application and referee form that can be typed on.
