This is a wonderful opportunity to step into senior leadership at a small, friendly school in the process of significant developments towards our vision of 'Inspiring passionate world-ready rangatahi'.

Situated in stunning Golden Bay, our school is surrounded by National Parks and fabulous beaches.

We are in the process of transforming how, what and where our students learn. This fixed-term position has been created by the BOT to enhance the senior leadership team’s capacity to lead the transformational change.

Our pedagogy development (how students learn) is based on Culturally Responsive Relational Pedagogy. We are working with Waikato University on the Poutama Pounamu Programme, and with Greg Jansen from Leadership Lab on Relational Practice. We have a strong and evolving relationship with Manawhenua ki Mohua and are committed to better serving our Māori students and whānau. This includes the introduction of a bilingual class for Y7–8 students.

As part of a Top of the South Secondary Leadership Community of Practice (CoP) facilitated by Chris and Greg Jansen, we are reviewing our curriculum (the what), and how the timetable serves curriculum, wellbeing and pedagogy.

In terms of where students learn, we are at the preliminary design stage of a very significant building programme. This includes a new whare wānanga, library, classroom block, hard materials technology block, administration and an upgrade of many other parts of the school. The next stages of design will involve considerable further consultation.

The successful candidate will start asap. They will share leadership of the day-to-day operations of the school, along with leadership of the transformation programmes, within a senior leadership team currently comprising 2 deputy principals and the principal.

The principal warmly encourages those interested to email her and make a time for korero about the role.
