Have you ever had a passion to collaboratively develop an inclusive school that has tamariki and aroha at the heart? To create an inclusive kura where our cultural heritage of Aotearoa is at the centre? Do you see technology as an exciting curriculum area that is future-focussed and has the dreams of its tamariki in its sights?

In February 2022 our foundation tumuaki, along with the board of trustees, staff, tamariki and whānau, will open the doors for the first time. This Y0–8 kura will be a first for Rolleston with a bi-lingual nest and technology block. We are looking for a passionate tumuaki rua who will lead through the lens of aroha. You will have strong beliefs in our values of kotahitanga, manaakitanga, whanaungatanga, kaitiakitanga and rangatiratanga. 

 You will need to be:

  • An engaging leader who is comfortable working collaboratively with whānau, hapū and iwi.
  • An inclusive practitioner who values diverse ākonga and agencies involved.
  • An experienced and dynamic educator with a deep understanding of best practice.
  • A future focussed and innovative motivator who nurtures and uplifts others.
  • A leader with an eye for detail who enjoys delving deeply into data so that every ākonga can reach for their dreams.

If you fit this description and want to help our tamariki develop their passions, please put your application in for Te Rōhutu Whio (formerly Rolleston East Primary School)!

The position commences on Monday, 3 May 2021.
