Are you a leader keen to have the best of both worlds? Working from a near-city location in an environment built on strong rural foundations? An exciting opportunity has arisen to lead Hiwinui School through its next phase of development and growth. Hiwinui School is a semi-rural school on the outskirts of Palmerston North that accommodates students from Y1–8 with a roll of over 150. This roll is only likely to further increase as our area continues to thrive from population growth, however we remain true to our rural beginnings. 

As the cornerstone of Hiwinui, our school benefits from an actively engaged community who are looking for a school leader to help inspire and motivate our staff and students to explore their full potential. Our school motto is “seeds planted today will flourish and blossom tomorrow”. 

Our new principal must role-model our values of respect and honesty for self, others and our environment. As well as having a strong understanding of the curriculum we seek a tumuaki who possesses the skills, courage and vision to actively: 

  • Encourage all students to explore their potential in a safe and caring environment. Our students will be fostered to develop healthy behaviours for life and learning
  • Build on the school’s reputation for attracting quality staff who actively seek professional growth
  • Value and support staff by providing quality learning opportunities
  • Ensure the sustainability of Hiwinui School through community involvement and effective management of property and resources
  • Promote the school through motivated students who are active participants in society. 

The position of principal commences from the beginning of term 1, 2022.
