Our school motto Whakapono ki a koe - Believe in yourself is at the heart of who we are, and what we do at our school.
This has come to mean many things for our learners at Roscommon:
Have respect for yourself and others, as people, as learners.
If you are faced with challenges, know that you have what it takes to rise to them, and that you will grow in self belief through achievement of your goals.
You have the power to make choices for your life. Education increases your ability to choose.
Everything in life is about learning. There are no mistakes, only lessons that you haven't learned yet.
'Yourself' includes not only you, but your family, friends and community - your whanau.
Self belief is a love of all that you are and can be, and loving and caring for others.
