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 1991 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 Enrolment Areas (PEA). Please see our Enrolments webpage for a description of current enrolment policies and procedures. 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 population has been steadily growing over the past few years, with a current enrolment of 550, preschool to year 6. The school has strong community connections and parent/volunteer involvement.

At Mount Rogers we believe each child can learn when:

  • they feel valued and have a voice
  • they are highly engaged in authentic tasks
  • the teaching is intentional and expectations are high
  • they develop skills as critical, innovative and creative thinkers
  • they have the opportunity to collaborate
  • their minds and bodies are healthy and active

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.

Sue Harding
