Here’s a great opportunity for an individual or teaching couple to make your mark on a fantastic rural, full primary (Y1–8), family-focused school on the West Coast. We are keen to hear from experienced principals looking for their next career move or aspiring principal looking to take the step up into leading their own school.

As the principal of Haast School you’ll enjoy the:

  • Sense of community
  • Teaching across all year groups with 0.3 release
  • Well-resourced school with excellent facilities and technology
  • Exciting curriculum opportunities.

This is an exciting opportunity for a community-oriented leader with great communication skills to take a next career step.

The Board of Trustees are seeking a new principal who is:

  • Resourceful, flexible and hardworking
  • Inclusive and caring
  • Passionate about the outdoors and integrating local environment into the curriculum
  • Has sound curriculum knowledge and management experience.

We are keen to hear from individuals but this is also a rare opportunity for a teaching couple to take the reins of the school as we have a 0.5 teacher position available. This opportunity is well suited to a teaching couple who can enjoy a flexible teaching schedule and take advantage of our wonderful 3-bedroom schoolhouse. Please refer to our teaching position also.

Our school is situated on the edge of a World Heritage site in South Westland. Its remote location offers a laid-back lifestyle with wonderful outdoor opportunities. Waking up each morning surrounded by native forest and minutes from the beach is hard to beat!
