An exciting opportunity exists for a motivated educator to lead our well resourced rural school boasting an excellent cohesive team, supportive Board and engaged parent community. 

Our staff are wonderfully committed and engaged and are justly proud of Glentunnel School’s – Mātai Rangatira performance and the reputation it has maintained for many years in the wider Malvern community.

Our tamariki are guided by our school values of Manaakitanga, Wananga, Whanaungatanga and Mahi Tahi and benefit from our beautiful well-kept grounds and amenities and the opportunities that the immediate outdoor environment surrounding Glentunnel School provides them.  Extracurricular activities include local skiing and farm visits, senior camp to Wellington and cultural visits to Te Taumutu Marae.

The successful candidate will build on this foundation and bring their own leadership vision and enthusiasm to Glentunnel School that aligns to the values and attributes that create our unique school environment.

Glentunnel is a small historic village located in the foothills of the Southern Alps that benefits from being close to metropolitan Christchurch and its international airport, while being on the doorstep of some of the country’s finest recreational areas.

The school is at the heart of the Glentunnel village and the Principal therefore plays a central role in the community. The successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to work with our local community groups and the wider Malvern Kāhui Ako – Te Hū o Kākāpōtahi.  The position also comes with the use of the school’s comfortable and well maintained family home.

The position commences at the beginning of Term 3 in 2021.

The board has put considerable thought into the attributes that are most valued for this hugely important appointment. These details can be found in the application pack which is attached.
