Looking for a lifestyle change? Get to and from work in 5 minutes….. purposeful and prompt meetings, that are limited, allowing plenty of time to do your planning, and your own thing!!

We have an amazing opportunity available at our area school (Y1–13), 4 decile, 60% Maori. We are looking for a deputy principal to lead Y9–13, with PN duties attached.

Area schools provide a unique and privileged insight into the growth and development of young people, from the age of 5 until early adulthood, and the opportunity to interact with a range of age groups.

Taihape is a beautiful town located on SH1 in a high country paradise of rivers, ranges, forests, farms, and mountains. Our 300 students come from a catchment roughly the size of Auckland, so there is a lot of wilderness, and many adventures, available.

Houses are affordable, you won't be stuck in traffic for hours each day, we have great cafes, and a wide range of recreational options available – including skiing, rafting/kayaking, hunting, tramping, a wide range of sports, and service groups. The school plays a huge role within the local community.

Class sizes are small, the buildings are modern, we are very well resourced, and our ERO Reports are positive.

If you occasionally need a bigger town, Palmerston North, Whanganui, Taupo, Napier, and Hastings are all within 1½–2 hours.

Accommodation is available.

For more information, or for an application pack, please email the Principal.
