Stationery

We’ve teamed up with OfficeMax to make getting school ready faster! Stationery Lists are available on My School website

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.

Stationery requirements for each year level:

Recommended BYOD Devices

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.

Uniform

Our uniform is only sold through the BDSC Uniform Shop located to the right as you face our Reception block.

Regulations

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.

Purchasing

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 Options

Payment by cash, Eftpos and credit card is available.

The College Donation may be paid with the uniform if desired.

Selling

The Uniform Shop will purchase second hand uniform under the following conditions:
• The uniform is in excellent condition
• There have been no alterations made to the uniform
• All items have been washed
• All items must be ironed where possible

The only uniform we will be accepting for second hand sale presently is jackets and skirts.

Botany Downs Secondary College expects a high standard of dress from their students therefore we are unable to purchase items that do not meet this standard.
