Our School

Our Vision: to be Active, Engaged, Successful Learners
Message from the Principal 

Our website has been designed to inform you about our school. We offer a special welcome to all new families coming to our school and a renewed welcome to those families with current or past involvement. 

Mt Roskill is a school where learning in all its forms and the development of the individual child is of prime consideration. We want to ensure that all children have every opportunity and encouragement to succeed, and that they work to get the best out of their schooling. Our vision is to develop children so they are active, engaged, successful learners. School and home need to work together to provide the best possible education for each child, and I would like to emphasise the following points:
  • Children must experience success and have positive, consistent support for their achievements. 
  • Children are individuals and their learning programme must accommodate these individual needs. 
  • Interesting and challenging activities are an essential part of learning and growth. 
  • Discipline and control are essential if the rights of all people are to be respected. 
  • School is only part of any child’s education and we wish to work with you in educating your child. 

Mt Roskill Primary has so many things going for it. The rich diversity of the cultural mix; the integration of children with physical disabilities, fragile health and special learning needs; the firm, caring structure of the relationships between people and the wonderful grounds and facilities of the Mt Roskill Campus are some of the many positives with our school.

Children are taught well at Mt Roskill Primary. There is a good balance with the school programme and those children who make the effort and have the support of their families, achieve highly. Special programmes are in place for the gifted and talented. I hope you will support us fully. We welcome your input and involvement and look forward to working with you in the education of your child
