our Vision: to be Active, Engaged, Successful Learners



Message from the Principal

Welcome to Mt Roskill Primary.  We are part of the Mt Roskill Campus of Schools where education is valued highly and students achieve. Our vision is to develop children that are active, engaged, successful learners. We give them opportunities to achieve in the classroom, on the sports field, in cultural activities and as good citizens.
Our school is a wonderful mix of diversity, with students from many cultural backgrounds working alongside students with physical disabilities and others with special learning needs. All have their part to play and all are successfully provided for. 

Our community comes from around the world and they all value education and want their child to achieve. At Mt Roskill Primary School we look forward to working with each of you to make that vision a reality.

2017 ERO Review

Our most recent ERO Review was completed towards the end of last year. The final report has now been released and we have the pleasure of providing a link for you to read it HERE.

The report highlights the excellent work going on at Mt Roskill Primary. They note our success in raising student achievement and providing a safe and supportive environment for all our students. Over the three days they were here they observed the great teachers and staff we have at our school as well as the excellent relationship that exists between school leaders and the Board of Trustees.

They also discussed the very positive involvement of our community in the life of the school and in the learning of our students.

ERO will return to evaluate and review the school again in 4-5 years. This is the longest time they allow between review dates. This is a reflection of the good work we are doing as a school. We are very proud of this achievement.

Dear Parents and Guardians

Re: Novel Coronavirus

You will be aware of the evolving situation regarding the Novel Coronavirus.  We are taking this seriously and are receiving ongoing advice from the Ministry of Health.

The Ministry of Health's assessment is the current risk of a sustained outbreak caused by the Novel Coronavirus is low in New Zealand.  The assessment however recognises that there is a small risk of a case being imported into New Zealand.

Our priority is to follow Ministry guidelines to ensure, as best as possible that our children and staff are kept safe.   Therefore if any students have travelled to any Asian countries over the holiday period we require that they remain at home for 14 days following their return to New Zealand. Please inform the school.  If any child presents with flu like symptoms at school we will be ringing parents and asking them to collect their child and suggesting that the child is taken to the doctor.

A web page has been established on the Ministry’s website at https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/novel-coronavirus-china-2019-ncov.  It continues to be updated as they receive new information.

We are reassured that Border Control is monitoring and has stepped up measures to detect the virus.  We want to reassure you also that we have a comprehensive team of health professionals at school who are skilled at responding to health concerns.

We remind our community to follow basic hygiene protocols.  These include avoiding close contact with those suffering respiratory illness, staying at home if you are unwell and practising considerate coughing and sneezing etiquette, as well as regular handwashing.

We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate with you accordingly in the best interests of our students and staff.
