We are seeking to employ a confident and caring Catholic educator, committed to our faith, to inspire, lead and grow our school.

We are a state integrated contributing Catholic primary school serving a multicultural roll (80 students, Y1–6) with strong connections to Catholic secondary schools in the area.

We are like a country school in the midst of the city, surrounded by green spaces with ample opportunities for free-spirited learners to work, play and learn together. We value each of our students' backgrounds and identities, run single-teacher classes and strive for inclusive education.

We have built a warm and fruitful relationship with Ngati Whatua Ōrākei and enjoy the support of our parish and wider community.

Our preferred candidate for this role will:

  • Support growth of the school roll, while preserving the Catholic special character of the school
  • Embrace learning and teaching by inquiry that enables achievement and develops independent thought, individual strengths and core curriculum competencies
  • Provide guidance and insight on maintaining an innovative approach to authentic learning and current pedagogy and professional development
  • Maintain and build on the true partnerships established with our families and community
  • Live our Brigidine Charism of ‘Strength with Gentleness’ together with our school values of Tika, Pono, Aroha and Faith.

A willingness and ability to take part in the religious instruction appropriate to the special character of the school shall be a condition of appointment. The appointee will be required to accept and recognise the responsibility to maintain and preserve the special character of our school.
