Closes 3pm 02 December 2019
Vacancy reference #: 1HA25h

We are located in the valley of Pawarenga and have a current roll of 20 students. It is anticipated that there will be some increase to that in the new year based on the level of interest within the community.

Te Uri o Tai hapu and Te Kura o Hata Maria were accepted by Nga Kura A Iwi o Aotearoa in 2018 and will transition from its current legal status as a special character Catholic school to a kura a iwi in 2020. This change also confirms the community's commitment to being total immersion te reo Māori by 2024.

The hapu recently held a well-supported wananga where whānau were enabled to contribute to the school's core documents in an effort to provide an innovative and fit-for-purpose foundation for our kura and its leadership moving forward.

We are seeking applications for the position of tumuaki (please note this is a teaching principal position) and the desired start date is term 1, 2020.

  • Is proficient and committed to te reo and tikanga Māori
