Our school has an exciting opportunity for an exceptional and motivated leader who wants to see the potential of each student and staff member in our school here in the heart of the far north of Aotearoa truly shine. 

The successful candidate will be the deputy principal of the school and the assistant principal of secondary, meaning that you will have the opportunity to lead a dedicated, successful and talented team of teachers; work alongside wonderful, supportive and aspirational students, whānau and church whilst successfully progressing the school's strategic direction. 

Team. Whānau. Life. Fun. Faith.  Humility. Honour. Excellence. Identity. These summarise who and what we are.

To this end, we are seeking someone with excellent organisational skills and the ability to communicate well to a wide range of people; someone who is a team player, has a good sense of humour, possesses a good understanding of the beautiful mix of Christianity and Te Ao Māori, is teachable and able to incorporate innovative and forward-thinking ideas.

This opportunity is unique – living and working in the warmest part of the country, surrounded by the best environment, beaches, and people with a school community that is wanting to stand out and above. 

Although a term 2 start is preferable, the start date can be negotiated if necessary as we will only employ the best fit. A minimum of 5MUs are available for this combined position. High priority staff allowance; possible travel assistance may also apply.

A strong alignment with our school’s unique special Christian character is essential. To get a feel for what makes our school so special, head along to our Facebook page, school website and church website. 

If you would like to join the team, contact us – the time is now!
