The Mission of Our School
In order to support the Board's mission, the mission of Mount Albert Public School is:
Through a powerful foundation of encouragement, students will develop strategies and attitudes to be effective, responsible learners who consistently reflect, self-evaluate and revise. These processes will develop life-long problem-solvers who can think for themselves, adapt and believe in their capabilities and potential.
Our school community will take affirmative action to ensure that everyone is treated with dignity, flexibility and respect, and is safe from physical and emotional harm. This will enable all partners in the school to become responsible, confident and productive citizens.
Our school motto is:
"We're on a quest,
Our school mascot is The Mount Albert Mustang.
In November 2003, as dedication ceremony was held for the Iron Horse which stands majestically in front of the school. The Iron Horse Time Capsule is a co-operative effort between Mount Albert P.S. and our community. The concept of the horse motif ties together the past, present and future of the town. Mount Albert's history is rich with the images of the railway connecting the community with the outside world, along with the history of horses as part of the surrounding farm life.
The Iron Horse is an imposing 7-1/2 foot high steel sculpture with ten compartments, mounted on two railway ties constructed by Ross Tanner, a local blacksmith and artist. The Iron Horse is an on-going time capsule to be used by the school and the community.
