The Roskill Way

At Mt Roskill Grammar School we take pride in behaving in a way which brings credit to ourselves and our school


These ideals are underpinned, enhanced and enriched by the values of:

  • Manaakitanga – Demonstrating respect and responsibility by uplifting the mana of each person, through empathy, tolerance and celebration of diversity
  • Whanaungatanga – Demonstrating participation, leadership and service through working with others and representing our school with pride
  • Tūmanakotanga – Demonstrating aspiration, and excellence, through a growth mindset, creativity and resilience

These principles are enshrined in our mission and vision.


Our students will be successful, powerful learners who are active and responsible citizens.


In a safe, supportive environment, MRGS will provide learning opportunities for each student to strive for excellence, realise their potential, and develop understanding of social responsibility and respect for individual and cultural differences.
