Our school is a new integrated Y1–6 Catholic primary school that is scheduled to open in February 2021. The roll will be 250 students by 2024. The school is situated in Papamoa East and serves a large, emerging suburban population. It is part of the All Saints by the Sea Catholic Parish.

The school is an innovative/flexible learning environment and is likely to facilitate inquiry-based learning approaches.

The Establishment Board of Trustees invites applications from passionate Catholic educators who wish to drive education innovation and deliver a school that places students’ learning needs, Catholic education and spiritual development at the heart of their decision-making. Our principal will foster and sustain a culture that welcomes and supports all children and their families.

  • Applicants who have a willingness and ability to take part in religious instruction appropriate to the special character of the school and have demonstrated a commitment to a parish life and the Catholic faith;
  • Expertise in learning within the flexible learning environments which empowers our students to succeed;
  • Excellent knowledge of the New Zealand Curriculum, with an enquiry focus;
  • Culturally responsive and conducive practices that celebrate our spiritual and multicultural demographic while acknowledging the special place of Māori as tangata whenua;
  • Learning programmes that seamlessly integrate technology into the learning journey;
  • Demonstrated creative and effective leadership;
  • Creative learning programmes that foster the arts;
  • The growth of strong relationships within our community;
  • Experience in school building and refurbishment processes;
