Welcome to Mount Rogers Primary School
We acknowledge the Ngunnawal people, the traditional custodians of the land we learn and play on. We pay respect to past, present and future Elders and recognise their continuing connection to country, waterways and skies. We thank you for sharing and caring for the land and we share our friendship and kindness. We extend this acknowledgement to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are with us on our learning journey.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Mount Rogers Primary School, a school with strong community connections, situated in the West Belconnen region of Canberra in the suburb of Melba. The school was opened in 1973 as Melba Primary. In 2008 the school was renamed Mount Rogers Primary
School amalgamating with Spence and Flynn Primary Schools in 1998 and 2007 consecutively.
Mount Rogers Primary School provides education for students from preschool to year 6. The suburbs of Flynn, Melba and Spence are our current priority enrolment area (PEA). Our school includes three preschools, two offsite in Flynn and Spence as well as one adjacent to our Primary
School in Melba.
Four core values: Excellence, Honesty, Fairness and Respect underpin our thinking. These work alongside our 4 Positive Behaviours for Learning (PBL) school-wide RISE expectations; Respectful, Inclusive, Safe and Engaged.
We have high expectations for every student and are committed to the inclusion of every child and meeting students with what they need to be successful. We are focussed on ensuring that every child knows they belong through fostering positive, collaborative relationships with families and
the broader community.
As a Professional Learning Community (PLC) school, teachers collaborate with an inquiry mindset to identify student learning needs and take collective responsibility for planning differentiated learning.
Parents and community members are welcome to be involved in our school at whatever level they can, including through the School Board, P&C and Healthy Hut Canteen and volunteering in other ways.
I am grateful and proud to be Principal of Mount Rogers Primary School and invite families to contact the school if you would like to learn more about what our school offers.
