This is an exciting principalship opportunity for an inspirational, dynamic leader of learning who will be:

  • A highly effective, collaborative leader with a genuine care for all, who can motivate and gain trust within a strong team environment
  • A compassionate, energetic person who will maintain and strengthen our rural community culture, traditions and understands our community values
  • A progressive, future-focused pedagogical leader who inspires learning and engagement across all curriculum areas
  • On a journey of learning te reo Māori and committed to Te Tiriti Waitangi and Mātauranga Māori
  • An excellent, visionary communicator who can build respectful and positive relationships within the community and with other educational enterprises including Piritahi Kahui Ako.

Students think that this is the most important attribute of their principal/tumuaki:

  • Friendly, approachable and willing to promote and participate in a wide range of activities.

Our full primary school represents one of the many shapes that creates the patchwork of growth and diversity of the Marlborough community. We are located in a rural setting surrounded by one of Marlborough’s best-known enterprises, viticulture.

We celebrate diversity, cohesiveness and authentic learning opportunities. Teaching is future-focused and students are supported to lead their own learning.

The school is the focal point for the community and provides high quality educational opportunities for its students and as a result is well supported by the community it serves.

Students and parents appreciate the family atmosphere, the professional and caring attitude of staff, the leadership opportunities that are created that provide new experiences, and at all times respecting the traditions of the past.

The school is full of heart, a caring disposition and has high expectations for the next principal/tumuaki to lead our journey.
