Heretaunga Intermediate is located in Hastings, in the heart of sunny Hawke’s Bay. Hastings is the home of major food processing industries, services a wide range of farming and horticultural businesses. The Hawke’s Bay Hospital is a major local employer and is right on the school’s doorstep. 

The Heretaunga Board is looking for a Principal to join with the current senior loeadership team to continue to implement the school values, Whakawhanaungatanga and our Learning Pathway, Te Ara Ako with staff and students.

The position of principal requires a highly relational leader who connects with staff, parents, our learners and the wider community. Ideally, you would have had leadership experience in a lower decile school and have an understanding of how to best educate young adolescents. We require a Principal who has a strong understanding of how to best foster learning for our Māori and Pasifika tamariki. There is a strong ethic of care required in this position as the hauora of students and staff is a priority. The successful applicant will have sound management capabilities and be able to strategically lead the school forward. The school has been undergoing a major building program and a new technology block is currently under construction. The school is reviewing a number of potential strategic concepts so a person who is flexible to the future needs of the school is desirable. They should, also, be energetic, enthusiastic and have a good sense of humour. 

The new principal will have the opportunity to join an effective leadership team and make a difference to our kura, building on the significant achievements to date. The successful applicant will be well supported by an experienced staff, a committed board, and a welcoming local community. Our application pack is available for download below.
