The Moturoa School community is seeking a new principal to lead us on the next part of our educational journey. We are looking for a leader with excellent interpersonal skills, innovative educational pedagogy and proven leadership practices. 

Moturoa School is situated 5 minutes west of the city centre, close to Paritutu Rock and Ngamotu Beach. It is surrounded by the beautiful native bush of Ngamotu Domain, and is adjacent to the bustling Port of Taranaki. This provides a rich learning environment. Owing to an increase in demand for spaces, the School Board has recently implemented an enrolment scheme.  In addition to the mainstream classes, Moturoa School operates a Montessori class spanning Y1–6. Enrolment into the Montessori class is managed by criteria outlined in its special programme status.

Featuring a supportive board, a committed staff, and positive community spirit, Moturoa School is an attractive option for an experienced or aspiring principal. Could this be you?

The successful applicant will:

  • Be an approachable leader who displays natural warmth, compassion and a sense of humour with students, staff and community
  • Be a NZ registered teacher with experience in managing and leading progressive change
  • Demonstrate a commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and te ao Māori, and possess a high degree of cultural competence and responsiveness
  • Have in-depth pedagogical and NZ Curriculum knowledge and experience
  • Be inspirational, passionate and able to develop and maintain strong collaborative relationships within the school and local community
  • Be prepared to lead and to make challenging decisions as required
  • Embrace the current ethos and culture of Moturoa School.

If this sounds like you then we look forward to your application.  Commencement date will be term 1, 2022 or by negotiation.
