U5, decile 2, primary Y1–6.

After 20 years our principal is stepping down and we are looking for another dynamic principal to lead our unique school. We have the largest number of children with additional learning needs in the country so inclusion must be a top priority in your skill set. 

We are seeking a principal of mana and humility who loves children, and puts their learning and wellbeing first. If appointed you will lead and serve a large staff team who place children at the centre of all they do. 

You must have a proven track record of: 

  • Leading and accelerating learning for all children, and in particular Māori and Pasifika children, and children with special needs
  • Embracing the parent community
  • Warmly welcoming all children
  • Successful leadership and management of staffing, finances and property.

Our school is in the heart of Greerton village and is proud to be the centre of such a community. The school is situated in a beautiful park-like setting with large trees around the circumference of our grounds.  

Our school is based fundamentally on loving and sustaining relationships with trust, open communication, collaboration and positivity. It is unique. We are the stability and security each child deserves. We are here to serve our students and to facilitate their learning.

If you think you have what it takes to lead us energetically forward for the new decade while preserving our existing legacy, please apply.

Position commences term 1, 2020 or by mutual agreement.
