Welcome to the Mount Rogers Primary School website

Mount Rogers Primary is situated in the West-Belconnen region of Canberra in the suburb of Melba. The school opened in 1973 as Melba Primary. In 1983 Melba and Spence Primary Schools amalgamated to form 'The Mount Rogers Community School'. The school continued to operate a campus at Spence as well as Melba until 1998 when the community decided to consolidate onto the Melba site.  In 2008 the school was renamed Mount Rogers Primary.

Mount Rogers Primary provides education for students from preschool to year 6. The suburbs of Flynn, Melba and Spence are our current priority placement areas. Please see our Enrolments webpage for a description of our current enrolment policies. Our school includes three preschools, two off-site in Flynn and Spence as well as one adjacent to the primary school in Melba. The school provides an early intervention preschool program at the Flynn site.

 The school population has been steadily growing over the past few years, with a current enrolment of 440, preschool to year 6. The school has strong community connections and parent/volunteer involvement.
At Mount Rogers we believe the early years of schooling are vital in developing the skills, attitudes and understandings that support our students to become life long learners. Scaffolding students' learning experiences and meeting their educational, social, physical and psychological needs in the early years provides an environment that supports successful learning.

Our core school values of Excellence, Honesty, Fairness and Respect underpin a safe, friendly and supportive environment.

I am proud to be Principal of Mount Rogers Primary and invite you to learn more about our school through this website.

Principal

Yes it's cold, but it is also Hats ON Again....keep your head warm too!

The beginning of August is Hats ON Again for all of us!

In Canberra average daily UV levels reach 3 and above for part or most of every day between August and May. When UV levels reach 3 and above, Cancer Council recommends sun protection to reduce the potential risk of skin damage which lays the ground work for skin cancer later in life, including deadly melanoma.

Did you know that skin thickness shows a gradual increase from birth to adulthood? Plus children tend to spend more time being active outdoors, whilst this is a good thing, it is important that sensible sun protection is also adopted, when UV levels are strong enough to cause damage.
