Roll: 147   Years 1-8   

Re-advertised position

Our principal has moved to the Ministry of Education so we’re on the hunt for a new tumuaki to join our team.

TBNS is a small decile 2 dual medium full primary school with 147 ākonga. It’s been part of the Bay community for 60 years. Generations have attended school at ‘North’ so the community has a sense of pride in their school.

Staff work hard to provide learning experiences that develop student interests and achievement. TBNS students are enthusiastic kids who love school. They display great tuakana teina attributes.


There’s a whanau whānui ‘country school in town’ feel about TBNS. Children are with the same teacher and classmates for several years. This fosters strong relationships and kotahitanga.

Our new leader needs to be able to develop strong relationships. They’ll look after, and care for, the kura and it’s people and will be well looked after in return.

It’s an exciting time with a number of initiatives coming to fruition in the next year or so including:

  • The establishment of the van Asch resource teacher team on site

  • Teaching space refurbishment across the blocks

  • The introduction of on-site Year 7/8 specialist technology teaching and learning

  • Assessment review work across 2018/19

  • Further expansion of the Learning with Digital Technologies pedagogy developed in the past 4 years

  • Ongoing success with early literacy development through our Shine Literacy Project mahi

This will be a great opportunity for a new, enthusiastic principal to ‘pick up and run with’ in the times to come.

We look forward to receiving your application.
