And welcome to

Mount Maunganui Primary sCHOOL





Established since

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.


Who act responsibly and with integrity. They strive for excellence, always seeking to be better and know how to give service to others.


They share their ideas and thoughts, they are clever users of language, symbols and texts. They are great listeners and confident and articulate speakers.


They know what they are learning, why it’s important to learn, what they will learn next and 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.
