Our college is a thriving, culturally diverse secondary school with a largely Pasifika and Māori student population. We enjoy modern learning facilities in whānau based houses, above the lovely Porirua basin. We are developing innovative curriculum to engage our learners and grow their voice, action and identity – our Kahui Ako's graduate profile. We have a proud history of restorative practice with strong, positive relationships throughout the school.

Due to roll growth, we are looking for a 3rd deputy principal to join our senior leadership team in 2021. Strengths in cultural sustainability, particularly with Pasifika and Māori students and communities, would be an advantage.  Portfolios will be agreed by negotiation with the existing team.

Primary purpose:

  • Leadership for equity, excellence and cultural sustainability
  • Designing, evaluating and coordinating engaging curriculum to develop voice, agency and identity
  • Leading professional learning to develop culturally sustainable pedagogy
  • Leading internal evaluation and inquiry
  • Building relational trust and collaboration with students, whānau, staff, community, local schools and external agencies
  • Ensuring an orderly and supportive environment.
