Our lovely principal of 13 years is retiring so we are looking for a leader who will continue the work to support and nurture the growth of Terrace End School.

We are a small school looking for a principal full of energy to lead us into a brighter and bigger future, building on the foundation laid by the current Leadership Team, Board of Trustees and staff.

The successful person will inherit a modernised school, with recently completed renovations on the main classrooms, and the administration block due to be rebuilt this year.  Our school has a very healthy adoption of information technology, which we are looking to build upon to enhance our learning spaces.   

Our next principal will:

  • Have experience in a leadership role
  • Be an effective and empathetic communicator and know how to get the best out of their team
  • Have proven ability and knowledge of curriculum development and pedagogy
  • Be culturally responsive to all ethnicities and be able to strengthen Te Ao Māori within our school
  • Be passionate about children as individuals, building up their unique strengths and abilities
  • Empower tamariki in partnership with whānau
  • Manage and resolve conflicts and challenges effectively while ensuring the hauora of the staff and students is maintained
  • Model and promote our school’s TEAM values
  • Be able to demonstrate competence in the areas of property, finance, health and safety.

The person we are looking for will value the input of others and know how to get the best results from the resources at hand. Terrace End School is looking for a leader to continue to build a collaborative approach and effectively direct the school into the future.

We see Terrace End School as a whānau that we would like you to be a part of.  We look forward to hearing from you.
