Principal – Position Opening January

HCG is seeking a qualified and visionary leader to take our school into it’s next phase of growth and development. Being an administrator at Highlands Christian Grammar School is a privilege. As the present administrator I can attest to the great working relationship with the Board and with teachers, parents and students.

Are you a leader who enjoys a high degree of trust and autonomy? Living in a developing country has its challenges, but also its rewards. This role involves the whole range of typical school principal functions from Board meetings, personnel recruiting and selection,  budgeting and finance, professional development of teachers, supervision of curriculum and both teaching and ancillary personnel. Depending on your skills, and on the others available on staff, there are opportunities to teach 1-2 classes, and to work on IT matters too. Are you a vibrant follower of Christ, with a passion for mission work? If you are a trained and enthusiastic person with a Masters Degree or more who loves to work with adults and with children, we invite you to consider this role. Experience and training for administration are definitely desirable assets. We pay a good local salary and provide housing and airfares. Mt. Hagen is a safe and growing city with a network of missionaries from the MAF base and other agencies. Email principal@highlandsgrammar.com to start a discussion about next steps to serving in Papua New Guinea.
