For us Mt Cook School’s close knit community brings to mind such words as: diversity; support; vibrant; creative; multi-cultural; different; fun.
This is a state school with a special approach to supporting our children to think for themselves, develop independence and confidence in their abilities as well as taking responsibility for their own learning.
From our central city location we have easy access to many interesting activities the city has to offer.
At Mt Cook School we are building on the great work done by previous staff and school community members to create a warm, inclusive learning environment for all of our students. We aim to inspire and promote curiosity, creativity and individual growth through academic, cultural and physical achievements and the developing of social skills.
We have about 210 students (Y 1-8) and have an enrollment scheme in place that includes a school zoning policy.
