With the retirement of our much-loved principal, the Board is looking to appoint an exceptional leader to continue our successful evolution.

As one of the oldest and largest primary schools in Dunedin, we are the most popular choice for primary education in the area, with a strong focus on strength-based learning and character education. A thriving decile 9, U5 primary school, with a growing number of international students, we have a community of supportive parents, well-behaved and respectful children from diverse ethnicities who are keen to learn and an outstanding team of staff dedicated to making the school the very best it can be.

Our new principal:

  • You are passionate about seeing children achieve their true potential and will create a school environment that inspires, challenges and supports their educational needs in preparation for a lifetime of learning
  • You will be entrepreneurial in approach, highly visible and engaging as a leader, prepared to take the bold decisions when necessary, naturally curious to explore new teaching practices and will be a role model for the school community
  • You believe in strength-based learning, have a deep understanding of the NZ Curriculum, accomplished in finance and property management, often described as a gifted communicator and a real pleasure to work with.
