At Greerton Village School we have four houses:


Nga Whetu 

Ika Roa


On enrolment at our school your child will be placed into one of these houses which he / she will be a part of for the duration of their schooling at GVS. All siblings are placed together in the same house. All Staff members are also part of a House, which adds to the hype, and excitement of promoting healthy competition.

Throughout each term, students have many opportunities to earn points for their house; participation and placings at sporting events, gathering tokens for being brave, having mana, showing aroha, achieving and   for wearing the correct school uniform. These tokens are placed in the house token box which the House Leaders count twice a term. All points are displayed on the Leader board and the winning house at the end of each term are rewarded with a prize. This is the prize that is spun on the wheel by the winning house Leader at the beginning of each term.

Our Whare Tee Shirts.

All children are in a Whare Group and will be able to wear their tee shirt on Whare Fridays instead of their school uniform top.

Ranginui – Kikorangi
Ika Roa – Kiwikiwi
Nga Whetu – Kowhai
Papatuanuku – Kakariki

These Tee Shirts represent our four whare/houses and are available in our school office for sale.
Our office has a list of your child’s Whare group and Tee Shirt size.
