Our school Houses are named after four famous Kiwis who represent our BEST values: Jean Batten, Peter Blake, Edmund Hillary, and Kate Sheppard.
Year 6 children who express and interest in becoming a House Leader complete an application form, are given problem-solving tasks, and attend a group interview. The teachers then have the difficult, yet enjoyable, task of narrowing down and selecting 12 deserving Leaders from a large group of worthy candidates. The House Leaders endeavour to lead their Houses with the Botany Downs ‘BEST’ values in mind.
