We are a U5 state integrated, high-performing school with a roll of 300 pupils in Y1–6.

After nine years of providing exemplary leadership to our school, our principal has recently been promoted and we are seeking to appoint a new principal who can maintain the outstanding record we have.

The school has a recent history of five-year ERO reviews reflecting the leadership of our principal, Board and staff who are always looking to review and improve practice. It is a school which embraces and celebrates its rich cultural diversity and continually strives for improvement.

Our school is surrounded by a variety of outdoor paradises – snow-capped mountains, lakes and rivers, fiords, bush and beaches. With Fiordland, the Catlins, Stewart Island and Queenstown on the doorstep, the climate and environment provide an incredible lifestyle opportunity for someone looking to lead our school. 

This is a tagged position and a willingness and ability to take part in religious instruction, appropriate to the special character of the school, is a condition of appointment.

This position commences term 1, 2021 or as negotiated.
