We are looking for a new principal for our semi rural community school. In surveying our community, they tell us they want someone who supports the community to bring the school vision to life, leads and follows with integrity, operates with transparency and is a great teacher and learner.

It is important this person is focused on forming good relationships in and after school, particularly understanding our Māori community, is able to adapt and strengthen to our Māori community.

The ideal candidate will be a skilled critical thinker with robust and confident skills and attributes. They will strengthen and create strong relationships internally and externally with vast networks to inspire our tamariki.

This will require them to support and encourage the school community to bring the school values and vision to life with a Māori world view, language, and culture.
