Roll: 811   Years 0-6    

Our much respected principal of over 20 years is retiring and the board is looking for a worthy successor who will start in January 2019.

We are a year 0–6 primary school based in Meadowbank, Auckland with a roll of 811 students and a history spanning over 100 years.

A key physical feature of our school is a site split by a wonderful, ecological gully space. A building project for 4 new teaching spaces, new administration block and new staff room is well under way. We are a well-resourced decile 10 school with great community support.

Our values of respect, responsibility, resilience and creativity are entrenched in school life and students all relate their learning activities to these values resulting in creative, curious, lifelong learners.

We offer a broad range of quality learning opportunities such as specialist Garden to Table, Te Reo, Mandarin, Music, PE, Coding and Robotics programmes.

We are committed to student achievement across the curriculum and are proud of our longstanding environmental focus including our Beyond Green-Gold Enviroschool status.

With our June 2018 ERO (4-5 year) review and a major building programme under way, this position presents a unique opportunity for an inspiring leader.

  • Be a highly motivated educator with the ability to empower and inspire students, staff and the community through strong communication and engaging leadership.

  • Have a strong focus on student achievement, continuing professional development, and collaborative practices.

  • Demonstrate exceptional financial management capability.

  • Have a passion for education and a commitment to students, their wellbeing and achievement.

  • Show a forward-looking approach towards extending our curriculum development and the range of learning opportunities.
