This is a wonderful opportunity to step into senior leadership at a small, friendly school in the process of significant developments towards our vision of 'Inspiring world-ready rangatahi'. 

Situated in stunning Golden Bay, Golden Bay High School (GBHS) is surrounded by National Parks and fabulous beaches. A Ministry of Education house is available. 

GBHS is in the process of transforming how, what and where our students learn. Our pedagogy development (how students learn) is based on Culturally Responsive Relational Pedagogy. We are working with Waikato University on the Poutama Pounamu Programme, and with Greg Jansen from Leadership Lab on Relational Practice. GBHS has a strong and evolving relationship with Manawhenua ki Mōhua and is committed to better serving our Māori students and whānau. This includes the recent introduction of a bilingual class for Y7–8 students.

As part of a Top of the South Secondary Leadership Community of Practice (CoP) facilitated by Chris and Greg Jansen, we have been reviewing our Y7–8 curriculum (the what), and how the timetable serves curriculum, wellbeing and pedagogy. The next steps include a full review across the school.

In terms of where students learn, we are in the construction stage of a very significant building programme. This includes a new whare wānanga, library, classroom block, hard materials technology block, administration and an upgrade of many other parts of the school.

The successful candidate will share leadership of the day-to-day operations of the school, along with leadership of the transformation programmes, within a senior leadership team comprising a deputy principal, two assistant principals and the principal.

The Principal, Linda Tame, warmly encourages those interested to email her and make a time for kōrero about the role.
