Botany Downs Primary prides itself on being a community school (Years 0-6) where delightful children, quality teaching and support staff, and extremely supportive parents work together to achieve success for all our students.  We treasure the family feel of our school. Our aim is to provide opportunities for our students to become independent learners within a safe and caring environment.  

We offer additional programmes for English Second Language students, additional curriculum support in Reading Recovery, Rainbow Reading, gifted and talented, music lessons, choir and kapahaka, and a variety of clubs and sports.
