The community of Kereru Park Campus, based in South Auckland, is proud of our culturally capable learning environment where our children (roll: 206; 83% Māori) learn in either three rūmaki Māori classes or English medium/reo rua classes.

We seek an innovative, future-focused leader with strength and experience in tikanga and te reo Māori who is passionate about the holistic learning and cultural identities of our ākonga.

You will have a track record within a senior leadership team and working in Māori-medium and reo rua (bilingual) settings. Applicants must be able to give effect to Te Tiriti o Waitangi in the school’s operation and practice.

You will be able to inspire and motivate others, create a warm, collaborative environment within the school, and place the interests of children at the heart of decision-making. You will have high expectations of self and others in terms of morals, ethics, integrity and discipline.

Others will be able to attest to your ability to work alongside a wide variety of stakeholders within the school, including with Mana Whenua. You will be visible and engaged around the school and at community events. 

Your organisational, managerial and administrative skills will contribute to the smooth functioning of the school. We expect that you will be up to date with research and professional learning and development, particularly in national priorities. You will be able to demonstrate you can obtain, interpret, apply and report on both quantitative and qualitative data about student achievement and work alongside learners to help them make progress.   

Our strategic plan, delayed by Covid-19 lockdowns, is under review. We hope to include a new tumuaki on this journey. You will be able to provide examples of strategic thinking and planning that you have been involved in and/or led.
