In mussel country and right next to the fabulous Pelorus and Keneperu Sounds (where water sports and fishing for blue cod, snapper and more are easily accessible), our gorgeous school of 63 students and 8 staff is looking for a new principal.

With 3 classrooms, a fantastic community space that doubles as a gym, a swimming pool, large grounds and a principal’s house overlooking the school, we have much to offer. The local community is highly supportive of the school and with Blenheim 30 minutes away and Nelson an hour, we offer the best of all worlds.

The position has a teaching component likely to be 0.3 or 3 days per fortnight. The Board however are very supportive and if the staffing entitlement allows it, the Board would consider ways to reduce the teaching load with provision of classroom release time considered.

The school community has said they are looking for someone with the following qualities:

  • Can be a role model for the students and staff
  • Is open, approachable and always willing to listen
  • Is supportive of sport and outdoor activities
  • Has strong communication skills
  • Can be sympathetic and understanding of each and every student and their different backgrounds and cultures.

If this sounds like you and you would like to come and live/teach/play in paradise, don’t wait to get more information.

There is a newly renovated 3 bedroom house available for the successful applicant at a reasonable rental.

The Board is willing to negotiate a starting date and while term 4 this year is the preferred start, a January 2021 start could be discussed.
