Following 8 years of commitment and successful leadership at Greymouth High, our tumuaki is moving ‘over the hill’ for a new challenge in a new school. This means we are now looking for an inspirational leader to grow the mahi that has started at our school.

On the gorgeous West Coast of the South Island, our school with a roll of 550 has developed a culture of welcoming people, caring for them and providing every student with the opportunity to succeed in their own way. We employ 40 FTTE and have a total staff of 115.

Our vision is to be ‘The heart of learning in our thriving community’ and our passionate staff work actively every day to turn our vision into the reality.

Greymouth is a community that has had its challenges in the past but there’s a lot going on here now and in the future. Housing is affordable, the scenery is second to none, there are no traffic lights in the town, the opportunities for a huge range of outdoor activities are obvious and the people are what makes the town special.

The school is currently focusing on implementing a new highly student centred curriculum in Y9–10, refining our PB4L programme and looking for ways to ensure Māori students achieve as Māori.

We are looking for a leader who can inspire our tamariki and kaiako through:

  • A focus on building positive and strong relationships
  • Developing engaging future-focused teaching
  • Growing sustainable leadership
  • Having a drive to make a difference
  • A willingness to be a part of the wider community.

This is an opportunity to be an educational leader in a very supportive environment where opportunities abound.
