Due to the retirement of our current principal an exciting opportunity exists for an energetic and innovative 21st century leader to continue on and enhance the great education we have been delivering for our tamariki here in Waikouaiti, just 30 minutes north of Dunedin city.

Commencing at the beginning of term 1, 2020 our new principal will enjoy recently upgraded learning spaces, open and awesome grounds, a passionate staff team and a supportive board and community, along with a growing roll and a very positive ERO report.

Ideally our new principal will: 

  • Be an experienced school leader with a proven visionary record 
  • Be a collaborative leader who can listen, laugh, communicate with, and relate to, persons of all ages 
  • Be culturally responsive, confident and comfortable working with parents, whānau, hapū and iwi 
  • Be a lifelong learner who is highly motivated, enthusiastic, inspiring and professional 
  • Have a focus on leading learning that encourages innovation in a modern and digital learning age.
