At Mount Rogers Primary School teachers focus on explicitly teaching all students at their point of need. Students work on learning experiences independently and in a range of groupings within their class.

Playground Supervision

A teacher is on duty before school at the basketball court and junior playground from 8:40am to supervise students as they arrive at school. For their safety children should not be on the school grounds before 8:40am.

For information about before and after school hours care please contact Communities@Work on 1300 212 272 or visit their website.

Students assemble at morning lines on a Monday morning only in their class group on the basketball court at 8:57am, where they are met by their class teacher and listen to announcements. For the remainder of the week students in Kindergarten to year 2 assemble on the black top near the bike enclosure and students in years 3 to year 6 assemble on the basketball court. Teachers supervise play on the north playground, Kindergarten playground and the basketball court during Break 1 and Break 2.

Attendance and Absences

Parents/carers are legally obliged to inform the school of a child's absence or lateness.

Absences may be notified through the Skoolbag App, an email or written note to the teacher, a call to the office or an email to info@mtrogers.act.edu.au. Students who arrive at school after 9:00am must be signed in at the office and collect a late pass. Parents/carers will receive an SMS if a child has an unexplained absence.

Children who need to leave early for any reason must be collected from the office and signed out by an adult.


All students are encouraged to take pride in belonging to Mount Rogers Primary School by wearing school uniform or colour code (red and black). New uniforms are available from Workin' Gear Schools, and hats can be ordered online via the canteen (www.flexischools.com.au), or purchased from the office (cash only).

Student Leadership

Student leadership is a major focus at Mount Rogers Primary School. We endeavour to provide opportunities and situations which foster the development of leadership qualities in our students in a variety of forums.

School Captains

Each year students and staff vote for two School Captains and Vice Captains from a group of year 5 students who present a short campaign pitch. These students are role models who promote the school values of respect, excellence, fairness and honesty in all they do. The School Captains represent and promote the school at a range of events throughout the year.

House Captains

In Term 4, year 5 students nominate to be a House Captain or House Vice-Captain for the following year and present a short pitch.  All students in yeas 3 to 6 vote to elect captains to lead their House at various events, including the carnivals during the year.

Year 6 Leadership Program

Our Year 6 leadership program allows senior students to volunteer to take responsibility for organising coordination and leadership in a variety of areas.

Students may nominate to be a leader in one or more crews such as Maintenance, Hospitality/Canteen, Sport, Library, IT and Media, Charity and Playground.

Buddy Programs

Each class is linked to another class through the school buddy program. This program offers the opportunity for older students to support and mentor younger students in a safe, caring environment. In Semester 2 each year the orientation program allows preschool students to develop a strong bond with their buddy.

Sustainability Program - Roger Rangers

Students in each class can nominate to be elected as a member of the school's sustainability team. The role of the Roger Rangers is to monitor environmental initiatives across the school.  This includes monitoring water and energy usage in the school, encouraging recycling and correct sorting of rubbish, composting and caring for the vegetable gardens and worm farm.
