Welcome to Mt Roskill Intermediate

Whakapuāwai-To Thrive

Thank you for taking the time to find out about our wonderful school.

If you are looking for a school where your child will be safe, grow in confidence and develop a ‘tool kit’ of skills to take them into their secondary schooling, you have come to the right place! We want our students to thrive in every aspect of their life . Our programmes, initiatives and approaches to learning foster this. We believe that students learn best when they are happy, feel safe and know that they are valued. This is the environment that we work hard to create and maintain. We welcome your input and involvement! By working together with you we can help your child to really get the most from their learning. We look forward to building a strong and lasting relationship with you and your child as they move through our school. Ko ia kāhore nei I rapu, tē kitea. He who does not seek will not find.

Ko te pae tawhiti,

Whāia kia tatū,

Ko te pae tata,

Whakamaua kia tina

Reach for distant goals,

So they seem close for you to grasp,

But hold fast to those that are close to you,

So you can attain them

Update on this morning’s lockdown

Wed Aug 23 03:07pm

Good afternoon,

As you would have heard, Mt Roskill Intermediate and the surrounding Campus schools were instructed by the Ministry of Education, shortly after 9.30am, to go into lockdown.

We immediately initiated our lockdown procedures upon receiving this call. We stayed safely in lockdown until we were instructed by the Ministry of Education that it was safe to come out. We were in lockdown for just over 30 minutes.

All our students responded calmly and put their training into practice. We are very proud of how everyone responded.
It’s timely to remind you that should you become aware of a lockdown or an evacuation at our school, that you do not attend the school or phone, as we will not be able to respond. Your presence or contact may make it more difficult for us or the emergency services to manage a situation. Our first and main priority is the safety of all students and staff on site.
