We are seeking an innovative, collaborative leader who is passionate about both academic and personal success. The successful candidate will join our senior leadership team to support the leadership of our school kaupapa (our charter, vision and strategic plan). The school appointed a new tumuaki/principal in term 3, 2020, along with two new deputy principals, and will shortly be working through the appointment of a new school Board of Trustees. This is a wonderful opportunity for someone to contribute to a school community in the midst of positive change. 

Our school believes in building respectful and meaningful relationships with our community and values both whakapono (building integrity and trust) and aroha (practicing compassion and respect) to inspire our students to aspire to be the best versions of themselves both personally and academically.

If you can:

  • build and enhance positive professional relationships with people
  • provide strong professional role modelling underpinned by theory and practice 
  • demonstrate awhi and care in your everyday interactions and 
  • You are a lifelong learner then please apply. 

Our school is community focussed and we encourage all staff to contribute to the varied learning opportunities that are offered to students in such an environment.

As a new senior leadership team we are looking to add one more person.  While there will be flexibility around the role, we are looking for someone who has skill and a keen interest in curriculum and timetable design.

Position to start at the  beginning of 2021. 

Application details can be found on our website.
