U4 Principal - Kaukapakapa

[Years 1 - 8, Roll 299]

We want you to make a spalsh!

We are a high performing and well-resourced, semi-rural school on the Northern edge of Auckland, with a welcoming community and top notch kids!  We have attractive and modern new classrooms, dedicated staff and an enviable locality.  We are inviting applications from outstanding Principal candidates, to fill some big shoes in a school with an inspiring past and a future filled with promise.

We are seeking a Principal who will take the time to recognise our strengths and boast about our successes, while guiding us to even higher academic, cultural and sporting achievements.  Someone with vision, who will ensure our traditional standards are maintained in a modern and innovative digital learning and teaching environment. 

Our students are looking for a smart, funny and honourable Principal, someone who will get out on the field and play with them, encourage them in all they do and support their classmates who may struggle.  And very importantly, a good listener who makes the right decisions!

Our staff are looking for a “people-person”, someone “firm but fair” with mana and vision, who can also take the heat in the kitchen if needed!   You’ll need to know your stuff and trust they know their stuff too.  Our staff would like a collegial, collaborative leader, who has a clear understanding of current curriculum, pedagogy and technology.  They want you to have a sense of curiosity, to laugh, to lead and to care.

Our very active and supportive families want a visible, open-minded and “fresh-thinking” Principal with outstanding communication skills, a strong sense of adventure and a great sense of fun! An inclusive and approachable professional who will guide, support and inspire both our students and our fabulous staff.

And as Board members, we have the very special job of finding you!  If you are ready to dive into your next challenge, we’d love to meet you.
