A Word From Our Parents


Mount Pleasant Primary is not only a beautiful School to look at it and a great Community to be a part of. I have found the teachers to be very passionate and dedicated in engaging the students and always strive to help each individual child to be their personal best.

The curriculum is well balanced and values creativity and student agency.

Kate Robinson is a wonderful leader, innovative role model and I could not wish for a better Principal.
