Seeking an inspirational academic and operational leader to take us forward as a designated character kura from January 2021.

We are charting a new educational direction in pursuit of collective excellence and high personal achievement. Our mission, to unlock the potential of our rangatahi while honouring the deeds of our tupuna. 

The designated character of our school reflects a kura committed to te reo me ona tikanga o Ngāpuhi-nui-tonu with adherence to te Tiriti O Waitangi and the rights accorded us, with particular reference to Article 3 which grants us the rights of citizenship which were affirmed by the men of the 28 Māori Battalion who paid the ultimate price of citizenship. 

This serves as the korowai for the kura cementing our unique educational approach of providing a tikanga Māori-based programme of learning that includes and supports ākonga to achieve their aspirations within the kura and beyond.

Our pou:

Kia Māori – an education and an environment that validates Māori knowledge and ways of learning.

Kia Mātau – encouraging innovation, enquiry and the development of specialised knowledge and skills.

Kia Tū Rangatira Ai – the development of strong character and personal excellence, living with mana.

'Tū ki te marae...Tū ki te ao'

Seeking a dynamic leader who provides:

  • A demonstrated commitment to te reo Māori and our designated character
  • Distributed leadership 
  • A pastoral care system within a Māori framework
  • Commitment to student-centred, evidence-based decision making
  • Outstanding relationship management across a broad range of stakeholders
  • An innovative curriculum and e-learning environment for 21stcentury learners
  • Ability to inspire and challenge stakeholders to deliver the board's strategic vision.
