Me mahi tahi tātou mō te oranga o te katoa. Nau mai, haere mai!

The Board of Trustees with support from students, staff and community, seek to appoint a kind-hearted, innovative and inspiring principal who is able to build on our current strengths and lead the school forward. 

Our school is in Naenae, a suburb at the northern end of Lower Hutt City surrounded by hills covered in regenerating native forest. It’s within easy reach of Upper Hutt City, and 25 minutes drive from the Wellington City centre.

At our school we have: 

  • Vibrant, richly diverse students
  • Supportive and hardworking whānau
  • Dedicated, talented, creative and relentless staff
  • Solid foundations of evidence based practice and effective pedagogy
  • Resilience and heart.

Our school community made THIS VIDEO  to show you what we love about our school and what we are looking for in our new school leader. Don't be put off by the extensive wishlist! (We're still interested to hear from you even if you aren't sporty, multi-lingual, and an expert at TikTok!)  

Are you the right person to lead our school into the future? 

For an application pack and/or to organise a visit with the school please contact Helena.
