Background

Johnsonville School has four whanau-houses - Korimako (green), Pihipihi (silver), Tieke (red) and Tui (blue). Each whanau-house is named after a New Zealand native bird that feed off the flowers of harakeke (flax). 

Introduced in 2012, the whanau-house system is a vibrant part of the school's culture and aims to give students an identity and sense of pride in a supportive, secure environment. The whanau-houses provide for positive competition and a closer rapport between students and school staff.

Each whanau-house has two Year 6 Whanau-House Leaders who help the teachers organise the events that make up the school's whanau-house competition.
