The Ngāti Toa Board of Trustees, working with Ngāti Toa iwi, are seeking to appoint a Tumuaki to Ngāti Toa primary school (Y1–6).

Ngāti Toa is a school with a special wairua which comes from a rich history of being the school of the Ngāti Toa iwi. Our student population is largely Māori and the majority are mana whenua. Many students identify with the Pa which is just down the hill from the school.

The school is at the centre in our community with whānau and iwi very supportive. The church at Takapūwāhia plays a significant role in the lives of many learners. These strengths are the foundation from which we are planning great things for the future of our school and our tamariki. The school roll is approximately 150 students.

Our belief is that our tamariki learn best when they feel they are at home among whānau and we strive to engender them with a sense of themselves as true kaitiaki as well as true learners.

We are seeking applicants who are keen to be involved in discussion to design what schooling might look like at our school. This will happen through discussion and kōrero with staff, community, whānau and iwi.

We are seeking :

  • An applicant who has strong knowledge of the NZ Curriculum and assessment
  • An applicant who can build strong relationships with students, whānau and iwi
  • An applicant with te reo fluency or is committed to ongoing learning of te reo towards fluency
  • An applicant who can lead schooling changes in our context. 

Ideally we are looking for our new Tumuaki to start in term 1 2022.
