Our school is a specialist provider for students who receive targeted funding through the Ongoing Resourcing Scheme (ORS). With a roll of 138 students aged from 5 to 21 at present, we are entering an exciting time in our development with planning underway for the construction of a new school on the new West Belfast Primary site.

The school has a vision of Ko te Kura, Ko te Hāpori, Ko Tātou – Toward Community Inclusion, and the Board are focused on looking to opportunities in the future to progress this vision for our learners.

Opportunities to make a real difference in a school such as ours do not come along that often and if you have what we are looking for, don’t wait to find out more!

The qualities our community has said they want in their new principal are:

  • Experience in leadership in an educational setting
  • Understands the needs of our students and is an advocate for them
  • Is a strong communicator within a wide range of diverse contexts
  • Models our core values of Whanaunatanga (belonging), Mana Motuhake (independence), Atawhai (generosity) and Tutukitanga (success)
  • Has a proven ability to build and maintain productive relationships with students, parents, staff and on a wider basis with those involved with the school.
