Further, you should be able to demonstrate that you are proficient in being able to grow the  capacity of a large staff and support our whānau in a context of servant leadership within a framework based on the Circle of Courage ©. 

An ability to analyse student achievement, quality of teaching and learning, and effective systems for school organisation in order to inform and maintain school effectiveness are very necessary attributes for successful candidates for these positions.

We will support and invest in your professional learning aspirations, as we believe in growing leadership capacity and providing a culture that embraces innovative thinking, creative solutions to complex challenges, and allowing you to flourish as a leader and specialist educator
