Vacancy reference #: 1HA8sn

The vacancy offers a tremendous opportunity for a leader who has the commitment and passion to further extend the school through our Vision 'Inspired learners, empowered for life', Values 'Respect, Responsibility and Aroha' and Motto 'The key is me!' 

We are a rural school (established in 1868) set in picturesque hills overlooking farmland. Our  roll is drawn from farming families in the local area as well as children from Mataurau and Gore seeking a family orientated school option with smaller class sizes. There are ample grounds for children to play on and plenty of trees to climb in. 

Tuturau has the advantage of being positioned in a rural setting yet still has easy access to nearby towns and cities; 15 minutes from Gore, 40 minutes from Invercargill, under 2 hours to Dunedin and just over 2 hours to Queenstown.

A school house is available for rent. 

The new principal will be working with a highly supportive community and an experienced, dedicated staff. The school receives incredible support from a number of initiatives, in particular the Lower Mataura Kahui Ako which all greatly enhance learning opportunities in the school. Planning for 2 new building projects is underway.
