The role of Golden Bay High School house leaders this year is to lift house morale, teacher and house co-ordinator Tasmine Palmer says.
The school is divided into four houses - Red, Green Yellow and Blue, across all ages. There are 17 house leaders.
Leader for Yellow House Dallas Bradley said she had decided to be a house leader due to the fact that "Yellow House is full of awesome people".
Dallas plays "lots of sports" and is busy every day with work, swimming training and St John cadets. She works as a farm shop assistant and a part-time milker.
She said she was looking forward to helping to motivate people to get involved in things they did not usually do, including getting people talking to people they don't usually talk to.
Red House leader Floris Pontier said he wanted to be a house leader because he liked to lead and he felt his final year was a good time to get few new skills.
Floris said he was not so keen on the organisational side of things.
When asked about his plans, he said he intended to work through the next summer holidays then go travelling with his girlfriend, to Europe.
He has not yet decided on a career.
Red House deputy leader Emma Bailey, 15, said she was really keen to get stuck into her new role.
"I'm pretty into the whole leadership thing. I like putting my opinions out there and doing thing about thing and getting things done," she said.
She said she was keen to create an inclusive environment for everyone in Red House, from all years. She also intends to "not let people get me down and be positive".
Emma said she liked most sports and enjoyed English and geography. She said she was considering law as a career.
