An exceptional school requires an exceptional new leader. Located in the heart of the thriving community of Karaka (south-west of Auckland), the school was established on the principles of International Baccalaureate and is rapidly becoming the local primary school of choice. Vibrant, colourful and dynamic, the school is decile 10 with a roll of 350 students from 27 ethnicities and is forecast to double in size over the next few years and is progressing with an exciting building programme to add facilities during this time. Described as the epitome of a modern learning environment, the school is well-resourced with a talented team dedicated to collaborative teaching.

With the departure of the foundation principal after 10 successful years, the Board is looking to appoint an accomplished educational leader as their brand champion to educate, lead and inspire. Are you ready to run this school?

Our new principal

  • You are a collaborative, visionary, curious, visible and digitally-focused leader who thrives on community engagement. Ideally, you will be able to join at the beginning of term 1, 2021
  • You will have worked successfully within an open-school environment, fully appreciate the requirements of the IB approach and are genuinely passionate about personalised learning
  • You will be up-to-date with current developments in modern learning pedagogy. Colleagues would describe you as determined, self-motivated, engaging, inspirational and a charismatic communicator who will take the time to listen.
