Our fabulous principal is retiring at the end of the year, and we are searching for a highly professional leader to work collaboratively with our 2 dedicated DPs and staff in our decile 7 school with a 2022 roll of 461. 

Marlborough Primary enjoys a very engaged, diverse community that requires our principal to be able to further our journey in biculturalism and multiculturalism. 

We have a very supportive school board and staff who are ambitious for our children’s hauora and holistic development. Therefore, we seek an inspired and passionate educator who will cherish our wonderful young people and their futures. 

We expect our new principal to be a “lifelong” learner who has successful experience in senior leadership and considerable expertise with the NZC.

The new principal will also be supportive of and advance our current initiatives including our ongoing development of learner agency; the Mitey programme; and our PB4L restorative approaches in dealing with issues.

The new principal will take the time to understand and respect our journey over the past decade and build on our many successes.

Our school's ideal principal will:

  • Be an effective communicator and an active listener
  • Be open to new ideas and ways of doing things
  • Encourage collaboration on all levels
  • Be future-focused for change and be a collaborative manager of change
  • Have exceptional interpersonal skills and have a superb sense of humour.

To visit the school, make an appointment with the principal Sue Buckley (09) 481 0365. Applications should be as described in the application pack letter.

Covid-level permitting, interviews will be on Saturday, 27 November 2021.   The position starts term 1, day 1, 2022.
