Our respected, longstanding principal has moved on after 19 years’ service.  This creates an exciting opportunity for the right person to lead our school into the future. Commencing in term 2, our new principal will enjoy fantastic students, a dedicated staff and the support of our board and families. 

We are looking for a people focused principal with passion, integrity and a genuine interest in our school and community.  The successful applicant will continue to celebrate our longstanding commitment to the Cornerstone Values programme (among other initiatives) and the benefits of education in a rural setting.

Kaharoa School is situated 19 kilometres north of Rotorua and is a 20 minute drive from the city centre.  It is two kilometres off the Rotorua – Tauranga direct road.

Over the past six years our administration block and four classrooms have been remodelled. Our remaining four classrooms are in the process of being renovated. We have excellent facilities including a hall, community swimming pool, extensive courts, a bush area and playing fields all set in a peaceful rural area. We are actively engaged in a range of environmental initiatives.

Our staffing entitlement is 9.73.

An enrolment scheme is in place to manage our roll.
