Are you passionate about local community and seeking a tree change? Would you like to lead a team of talented and enthusiastic staff and students who are excited to come to school each day? Then we would love to hear from you.

Waimate Centennial School is currently seeking a forward thinking, adaptable and passionate principal to join our close knit staff and school community. We are a whanau centered in a rural community with approximately 140 students. Our school has excellent outdoor facilities and a brand new modern learning environment. We have a strong focus on respect for each other, the individual and our environment and this is reflected in the model behaviour of our students. 

We collaborate closely with other schools in our district through the Waimate Kahui Ako. 

The Board of Trustees is seeking a candidate with previous leadership experience, excellent management and interpersonal communication skills both in large settings and one to one. A working knowledge of Te Reo Maori and Tikanga is also desirable.

Why move to Waimate? We are a scenic, rural community which offers the best of both worlds – peaceful country living while being just a short drive to larger centres. It is an outdoor enthusiast paradise with the Hunter Hills as our backyard, beaches a stone throw away and the Southern Alps close by. Waimate has a large multi-cultural population due to our agriculture industry and continues to be a draw card for young families looking for more affordable living and a lifestyle change.
