Simply type ‘botany’ in the school search box and select Botany Downs Secondary College.
2022 will open from 30 November 2021
We encourage you to order early to ensure students have all their stationery requirements ready to go for the start of Term 1. Don’t wait until mid-January when the ‘team of 5 million’ get home from holiday – order now and avoid the back to school rush.
This year OfficeMax have introduced Laybuy, so you can pay in 6 weekly, interest-free instalments – and still get your order right away. Or you can pay by internet banking, credit card or debit card.
When you shop on myschool.co.nz you’ll receive free delivery on orders over $46. You will also help our school earn school rewards that we use to purchase much needed extra resources for our school.
Please note this is NOT applicable to International students. International student stationery is ordered by the college.
The team at New Era Technology have worked with Botany Downs Secondary College to come up with these recommended devices to enable students to complete all the necessary schoolwork at home and in class.
We have a College Uniform Code that is agreed to by parents/guardians and students upon enrolment.
Once a student has agreed to become part of our college, he/she must adhere to the college standards. BDSC is proud of the positive reputation it enjoys in the community and presentation contributes to this;
we are proud that our students present themselves so well.
We appreciate that parents/guardians support the high expectations we have for students who attend with regard to uniform, attendance, learning, and work presentation.
Please refer to Section 24 in the Parent Guardian Handbook to ensure uniforms purchased meet the standards agreed to at enrolment. In particular, the requirements for shoes, skirts, and trousers.
We recommend that all students purchase a college hat to wear outside during PE or for travel to and from college.
Summer code required for Terms 1 and 4.
Winter code required for Terms 2 and 3.
Trading hours of the Uniform Shop will continue for the current enrolled students only and with limited service due to the current Covid Alert Level 3.2. The Uniform Shop will close for the year on 2 December 2021.
In 2022 the Uniform Shop will re-open 9am, Thursday 20 January. Purchasing uniform will take place through a booking system with half hour intervals. We recommend that parents and caregivers book appointment times in advance. There will be limited capacity to serve general walk ins.
The booking system will open on Wednesday 1 December and be accessed via http://schoolinterviews.co.nz using the parent code: sjba8
Payment by cash, Eftpos and credit card is available.
The College Donation may be paid with the uniform if desired.
