Our principal is departing on promotion and we are now searching for another inspiring leader. The new principal must be fully registered and have successful experience in senior leadership. We are seeking a principal who is respectful of the school’s journey and is prepared to lead change in a measured and collaborative manner. 

We have a great culture in our school and community that promotes our values of respect (manaakitanga), resilience (takohanga) and responsibility (manawaroa). 

Our school is very well-resourced and has a fine reputation for student achievement – ERO (2019) reports that, 'Most children achieve at expected curriculum levels in reading, writing and mathematics…and the school has very strong, educationally powerful connections and relationships with parents, whānau and community.' 

Our school, a member of Kaipatiki Kahui Ako, is centrally located on the North Shore close to the Tristram Ave motorway junction. 

The ideal person for this school will be: 

  • A strategic thinker who can also be pragmatic and ‘walk the talk' 
  • An educational leader who knows how to lift children’s achievement levels in key subject areas including technology and e-learning 
  • A person with a desire to enhance our language programmes that include te reo and Mandarin 
  • A leader familiar with recent research into effective educational change management 
  • Inclusive, visible and approachable with a great sense of humour and who enjoys excellent relationships.
