Principal U2, Y1–6, starting term 1, 2022, full-time, permanent.

This is an exciting principalship opportunity for an inspirational, dynamic leader of learning who will lead our learning journey with passion. 

We have a wonderful school of students who are looking for an amazing special principal to inspire their learning and development. Our tamariki would respond well to an enthusiastic, engaging principal who has excellent knowledge of the curriculum, has a passion for seeing children succeed and raising their achievements, is able to build positive relationships and works hard to make dreams a reality.

Our school is a Y1–6 community-based school in a picturesque rural environment, 7km north-west of Kaikōura. The new principal will also be attracted and inspired by the opportunities that our natural environment and community present to connect, broaden and deepen the tamariki's learning where they can explore and ‘commit to climbing the mountain of learning for life’.

A key focus of teaching at school is ‘inquiry learning’ which we call L4L (learning for life). Our school values of fun, organised, respect, communication and excellence are well-integrated and encouraged throughout our school. Parents are openly appreciative of the school’s unique inquiry learning style, values based culture and the respected traditions of the past.

The principal will need strong pedagogical and curriculum content knowledge that is future-focused, be a strategic thinker who is creative, reflective and community focused. Exceptional interpersonal skills, highly effective management skills and a commitment to working as a team are essential.

If this sounds like you, we warmly invite your application.
