Cardinal McKeefry School is a Catholic, integrated, Decile 10 primary and intermediate school for Years 1 – 8 offering a warm and welcoming cosmopolitan environment for around 80 culturally diverse students (U2). Our origins trace back to the Marist Brothers in 1876 while the current school was opened in the attractive Wellington suburb of Wilton in 1970 by Cardinal Peter McKeefry. We are a proud little school that offers a personal approach to learning, small class sizes, a reputation for academic excellence, dedicated teaching staff and a fully supportive school community. We are looking to appoint an exceptional Catholic faith leader who will grow our school and become part of our whānau.

 Our new principal

  • An inspiring faith leader with high levels of energy and enthusiasm and a focus on special character, student achievement, sports, arts and culture. You will develop a bright future vision for our amazing school
  • A person of integrity with a strong sense of justice, treats others fairly, is genuine, approachable and welcoming. You will be committed to ensuring all students achieve their true potential
  • A community builder who will put faith first, take an active role in the parish and attract new family/ whānau to our school. The role would suit an experienced or first time Principal.

Willingness and ability to participate in religious instruction appropriate to the special character of the school is a condition of appointment.
