Developing self, building communities and transforming futures through the Rolleston Spirit, is at the heart of everything we do at our college. Now there is an exciting opportunity for an innovative, inspirational and strategic leader to continue the momentum forward.

Our college, Horoeka Haemata, meaning the flourishing lancewood, opened its doors to Y9 learners in 2017. It has continued its rapid growth with an expected roll of 1,300 in 2021 and a staged extension underway to accommodate up to 1,800 learners.  

We offer a vibrant and diverse environment where our vehicles of learning,  Ako, Connected and Selected, enable us to deliver a learner-centred curriculum. The principles of personalised learning have been successfully delivered within NCEA Level 1 in 2019, embedded into the programme for Level 2 in 2020 and will continue to guide planning for Level 3. 

Our new principal will have the mana to: 

  • Build on the great work to date by the whole staff in providing a curriculum that excites and engages learners
  • Connect with learners and staff alike
  • Be inspirational, dynamic and able to maintain strong collaborative relationships both within the school and across its wider communities (Waitaha, PPP and Kāhui Ako) 
  • Push the boundaries in learning, pedagogy and educational leadership
  • Have the courage to explore innovative approaches to curriculum delivery.

If this sounds like you, please get in contact to pick up an information pack. Our current principal is more than willing to show people around and/or answer your questions – his details are included in the pack or available upon request.
