Are you a Kumeroa educator?

Are you ready to roll up your sleeves, pull on your red bands and come and join the creative and rural community at Kumeroa School? Are you an innovative questioner of educational norms? Do you value the learning potential of many contexts; 4 walls or no walls at all?

A school that truly values personalised teaching and learning through a rich and hands-on localised curriculum. The resources which will be at your fingertips as our new principal are impressive; from flexible learning environments, to a native bush classroom! Our learning environments, staff and students epitomise tuakana-teina. As our next leader you will think outside the box to draw out the best in every child, growing them as a whole person.  

You will be a professional, personable and consistent leader who:

  • Will embrace our rural setting and lead us with clarity. Embedding fully our hands on, learner centred, local curriculum
  • Knows your own strengths and struggles and acknowledges and embraces both
  • Understands the importance a rural school plays in the local community and is someone who is willing to be active and visible in the school and wider community
  • Is ‘hands on’ in the day to day running and management of the school
  • Knows the whole person they are working with; the student, parent, staff or community member are valued for everything they are, not just the role they fill in relation to school
  • Brings Te Ao Māori to our rural gates in an authentic, rich and integrated way.

Previous principals of Kumeroa School will tell you what an innovative and supportive school it is to lead. For the last 10 years principals from Kumeroa School have gone on to lead some of the largest schools in the lower North Island.
