The Board welcomes applications from educational leaders for our Principal position, that commences term 1, 2022 (negotiable).  This is a brilliant career opportunity in a rural school of 145 motivated learners, 10 minutes from Ohakune and 1 hour from Whanganui.  Raetihi School is based in the heart of the Waimarino area and at the foothills of Mount Ruapehu.  This provides an amazing opportunity for our new Principal to further develop our unique school culture through a dynamic, localised curriculum, using the resources we have available at our backdoor.  You will be instrumental in helping us achieve our vision of  ‘Raetihi tamariki learn together, play together, are connected to our whenua, awa, maunga and strive to make the world a better place' through our KAHA values (Kotahitanga, Aroha, Hauora and Akonga).

  • Will utilise the opportunity to be fully released to effectively lead learning and will be able to influence the direction of the school, based on your strong pedagogical knowledge
  • Is inspirational, is driven, has empathy, is visible within the community and genuinely passionate about making a difference for our tamariki and whānau.
  • Is an excellent communicator, approachable, genuinely committed to working in partnership with parents, whānau and staff
