Situated in the gorgeous gateway to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds at the top of the South Island, this is an opportunity for an enthusiastic and passionate educator to lead our school.

We, the tamariki of Picton Primary, are looking for a new tumuaki and we want someone who will inspire and motivate us to be the best we can be.

There are 98 of us learning here and we expect this number to grow to at least 110 in the near future. We have 5 classrooms and while our tumuaki does not have to teach, they do come and teach us when our kaiako are on classroom release time. We have 5 teachers, 3 teacher aides, an office manager, a caretaker and a cleaner who all care deeply about our school and take pride in what we offer.

When we were asked what qualities we wanted to see in our new tumuaki, we said we want someone who knows our names, interacts with us and is fun, friendly, kind and respectful.

We asked the kaiako what they wanted and they are looking for someone who is an effective communicator, is approachable, always willing to listen, can build positive working relationships, is culturally aware and willing to be involved in the local community.

Our parents want someone who communicates effectively, can connect with everyone, gets engaged in the local community and is kind, empathetic and caring with a sense of humour.

If you’re looking for an opportunity to live, work and play in paradise, this is the place for you. We have prepared an information package that provides more details around the position so don’t hesitate - send for it now!
