Horeke is a small kura on the southern shores of the Hokianga Harbour. We provide Y1–Y8 education in an idyllic school setting.

We seek a highly motivated and passionate teaching principal who can confidently lead the school while ensuring our tamariki are getting the best learning inside and outside the classroom.

The successful applicant must work efficiently and collaboratively with staff, whānau, board and the community.

Our learning journey at Horeke School has evolved over the years and our learning culture is strong and well developed. Growing student agency and competent digital natives through the utilisation of the school localised curriculum has seen positive momentum over the past few years.


  • Valid NZ teacher registration
  • Knowledge of all curriculum areas and can work across curriculum levels in a multi-levelled classroom
  • Demonstrate a commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, displaying a high degree of cultural competence and responsiveness
  • Commitment to learn and maintain te reo o Ngapuhi/Matauranga Māori.

A high performing leader of innovative learning with the ability to build on the strong learning relationships already in existence, can live up to our tamariki expectations, that teaching and learning should be an amazing race.

Take your leadership to the next level, the possibility of being the leader of our small rural school is a fantastic opportunity. Be assured there are many facets of the role that will be challenging and exhilaration.

Due to the isolation of the school locality, being prepared to get the job done no matter what it takes is what the children of Horeke School need and deserve.

The Board of Trustees is a supportive team of whānau members from the local community who look forward to assisting the new incoming principal.

School house is available.
