Truly Remarkable People – Nga Iwi Tumeke

With the departure of our much-loved foundation principal, the Board of Remarkables Primary School seeks to appoint an inspirational leader to continue our successful journey. We see each student as an explorer, discovering how best to develop themselves whilst taking responsibility for their own learning, both in school and outside. We make full use of our enviable Queenstown location with the panoramic backdrop of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkable Mountains beyond. As a thriving Decile 10, U6 primary school, for Y1–8, with a growing roll of over 600 students from diverse ethnicities, we have a dedicated staff team and enjoy great support from our parent and carer community. We live our values throughout all aspects of school life: Respect, Reflect, Reach Up, Reach Out and Reward. Are you ready to lead us through the next exciting stage of our journey?

Our new principal:

  • You will have the vision to create a school environment that inspires, challenges and supports the educational needs of all students in preparation for a lifetime of learning
  • You will be highly visible and engaging as a leader, prepared to make the bold decisions when necessary, naturally curious to explore new teaching practices and uncompromising in your determination to see all students achieve their true potential
  • You have a deep understanding of the New Zealand Curriculum, you are fully committed to the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and are often described as a role model who leads by example, a persuasive communicator and an inspiration to work with.

We look forward to hearing from you. Nga mihi.
