Welcome – Haere Mai
We are a high performing school with a focus upon quality education, community partnership, and whānau. Our children are at the heart of all that we do.
Botany Downs was opened in 1975 and is a contributing state school for students in years 1-6. We have approximately 600 students and 27 classrooms.
All children are supported and encouraged to meet their full potential underpinned by our school vision “Our Best Always”. Our school culture is based upon our values Resilience Manawanui, Respect Manaakitanga, Relationships Whanaungatanga, and Responsibility Kaitiakitanga.
We provide a rich, engaging curriculum that promotes high expectations and provides opportunities for our students to become independent future focused learners within a safe and caring environment. A positive balance of academic, the Art’s, physical, social and cultural opportunities allows each and every child to excel. We value working together with you and your whānau in a partnership to support your child.
We are all extremely proud of our school with its dedicated high calibre staff and supportive Board of Trustees and PTA. We hope that your involvement in school life will be both rewarding and fulfilling.
We look forward to a happy and positive association with you, your child and your whānau.
