Our school sits in a remote and remarkably beautiful enclave at the top of the South Island. Hemmed in between the Tasman Sea and the mountains of Kahurangi National Park, it occupies a special place, both in its landscape and community.

In its over 100-year history the school has undergone many transformations and is now at the threshold of another as it prepares for a complete rebuild and massive influx of funding that will secure its place in this community well into the future.

We are looking for a principal to lead and inspire our fantastic children, committed staff and supportive Board, someone who will celebrate and build upon the strong intergenerational bonds and close supportive ethos of this unique little school with a huge heart.

  • Our principal must be committed to developing a future-focused and challenging curriculum to inspire and fulfil our students
  • Employ excellent personal and professional relationship skills to bring cohesion and a sense of vision to this school and its community
  • Be an inclusive leader with high expectations of themselves, the staff and students
  • Be prepared to make the most of our location, environment and people to help our children be the best they can.
