Kereru School is a small rural school that caters for Y1–8 and is located just 30 minutes from Hastings in the established rural community of Kereru. We are seeking, from term 1, 2022, a dynamic and relational principal to lead our unique school. This role has a 0.4 teaching component of the senior classroom Y4–8. 

We require a principal who has a clear vision that will complement and enable the continued development of our “Plan on a Page”. As a board, we seek a proven teacher to join and lead the teaching team and are looking for a principal to continue our great Kereru traditions and also add their own flavour to our strategic direction. This needs a relational future-thinking leader who understands the aspirations of our whānau, students, staff and wider community.

As principal you would be leading a team of collaborative, supportive staff who understand the needs of a rural school. We are very fortunate to have a wonderfully dedicated and dynamic team that strives to ensure all children receive the best possible education. 

Our new leader will have integrity and the ability to structure programmes to meet the diverse needs of our learners. They will understand the nature of teaching in a rural environment and be empathetic to the hauora of all our staff and students. They also need to continue the strong partnerships with our Kāhui Ako member schools and to take advantage of the shared knowledge and PLD opportunities on offer. 

We share a commitment to developing the whole child - academically, socially, emotionally, culturally and physically in an inclusive and culturally responsive environment. We also use our enviro-school philosophy to tie into our localised curriculum.
