Kia Ora and welcome to our website, a place for news, information and most importantly, our learners in action.
We at Mount Primary believe firmly in shaping a ‘whole child’. This means not just our students as learners, but also as little people. At our school we have developed four characteristics we seek to develop in all learners at our school (Mounties).
These characteristics are known as our Mountieisms. Our Mountieisms provide a goal for each of us at our school as we work to shape and be Mounties each and every day.
Mounties are Team Players who know how to behave, include others, know how to step up and be a leader and also how to be an effective team member.
Mounties are Self Managers who act responsibly and with integrity. They strive for excellence, always seeking to be better and know how to give service to others.
Mounties are Communicators, they share their ideas and thoughts, they are clever users of language, symbols and texts. They are great listeners and confident and articulate speakers.
Mounties are Learners who take risks in their learning in order to learn new things. They know what they are learning, why it’s important to learn and what they will learn next. They persevere when things are difficult and they look for creative solutions to problems.
I'm sure you'll agree, Mounties are awesome!!
We hope you’ll enjoy learning more about our school and seeing our Mounties learning together in fun and hands on ways.
Please feel free to get in touch with us and make a time to come and have a look around and see first hand what makes our school a great place.
