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.
