The Board of Trustees is inviting applications from suitably qualified, experienced and passionate education leaders who are interested in leading their school when the current principal returns to New Zealand at the end of this academic year. This is a sole charge teaching position.

This is an exciting position for the right candidate, offering principals the opportunity to work in a unique environment and community. The school’s vision is for ‘Learners who are learning to learn, thinking differently, flourishing locally while looking globally’, embracing the values of Rangatiratanga, Kopitanga, Whanaungatanga and Kaitiakitanga throughout the school curriculum. 

Much has been developed over the last 4 years and the school is ‘well placed’ to build-on and embed these. The board is committed to sustained improvement and providing future learners with success. The Board wishes to appointment a highly skilled teacher and school leader who can sustain and extend the strategic and curricular direction/s which have been established within the school and wider community.   

About our school: 

Our school is located at the northern end of Wharekauri, Rekōhu, Chatham Islands and is an hours drive over a gravel road from the main township of Waitangi. The school is sole charge, with 2 main buildings, extensive grounds, a heated pool, adventure playground, raised gardens and a large plastic tunnel for raising plants.

The 3 schools on the Chathams work closely together to bring new pedagogy for deeper learning into the local curriculum, and are part of a combined professional development package delivered by CORE Education.
