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.
WHAT is the Board of Trustees?
The Board is entrusted to work on behalf of all stakeholders (Government, Communities and Parents) and is accountable for the schools’ performance. The Board of Trustees sets the vision for the school, and ensures that the school complies with all of the legal and policy framework set by the Government. The Board of Trustees are engaged in the Governance level of the school and does not involve itself in the management administrative details of the day-to-day running of the school. The Board of Trustees are encouraged to ask the right questions with the main focus with all decision making is that of enhancing student achievement.
WHO is on the Board of Trustees?
Currently MRPS has 5 elected parent representatives and 1 co-opted parent representative, 1 elected staff representative and the Principal.
HOW Does the Board Work?
Leading up to a Board of Trustees meeting an agenda is issued in advance, along with supporting information/material. Matters will be discussed and wherever possible actions agreed at the meeting. Minutes of each meeting are documented and available on request. There are a wide range of topics for the Board to consider and therefore, in order to make the best use of the time and skills of each Board Member, we have allocated portfolios of responsibility between the Board Members. However, all Board members still have an equal say and right to participate in any Board discussions/activities.
