Our values and vision
Mt Cook is a community where belonging, curiosity and creativity matter. We work hard to make Mt Cook School a place where tamariki, whanau and staff feel like they belong. We want our people to be who they are and know that they are valued for that. Mt Cook School is a place where curiosity is nurtured and our tamakiri are given the time and space explore the world around them in creative ways.
Who we are & what we do
Mt Cook is a diverse, vibrant inner-city school with a roll of around 260 tamariki. We have an engaged close-knit community, a highly supportive board of trustees, and a talented committed staff who care. From our central city location, we have easy access to the exciting and diverse activities the city has to offer.
Mt Cook School is committed to providing a warm, inclusive learning environment for all of our tamariki. We aim to inspire and promote curiosity, creativity and individual growth through academic, cultural and physical experiences and the development of social skills. We embrace playfulness and want our children to feel joy in their learning.
Our learning dispositions
We have identified curiosity, confidence, perseverance and adaptability as the learning dispositions that will strengthen our tamariki as learners and 21st century citizens. In and out of the classroom. We create and seek rich learning experiences that allow our tamariki to grow their capability in these dispositions.
