Vacancy reference #: 1H9ywr

We have a vacancy for an assistant principal at CHS. This role is fixed-term for the 2020 year as it is covering for a staff member on sabbatical leave.

The ideal candidate will have the ability to deliver on the following key areas of responsibility:

  • Principal’s nominee for NZQA assessment
  • School examinations
  • Support of provisionally certified teachers in meeting registration expectations
  • Lead on staff and student wellbeing initiatives, including the coordination of a schoolwide form time wellbeing programme
  • Parent-teacher interviews.

In addition to these responsibilities, the school will be launching a new house system and approach to form time in 2020. We will have six new houses, vertical form classes and a pastoral system that reinforces this new house culture. This role presents as an excellent opportunity to influence the culture of the school and assist with getting the new structure off to a strong start. In this new structure, SLT members will provide guidance on the development of a house and have ultimate responsibility for the pastoral support of a year level, in this case, Y11.

You will be joining an experienced senior leadership team (SLT) who share all aspects of the leadership of the school, being involved in both curricular and pastoral responsibilities. Our SLT is very supportive of staff and students and has a visible presence around the campus and at extracurricular events. It is expected that the successful applicant will be able to contribute to the positive life of CHS.

The role comes with eight hours of teaching per fortnight and 6MU.

Interviews for shortlisted candidates will take place in the last week of October.
