Azima House

When you’re GREEN, you’re growing!

Azima House

Green is the colour of nature and health. It represents growth, balance and harmony and it is these ideas that underpin all that we value in this house.

In Azima, we promote balance, service, support and a nurturing of ourselves and others. The idea of “sisterhood” can be seen in our acts of encouragement, love and care for one another. Everyone matters.

Azima has long been associated with enthusiastic participation, great sportswomen, sportsmanship and having our wits about us. Buttercup is our current mascot – she is the third of The Powerpuff Girls and is known as “The Toughest Fighter” – she is the spice of the trio. She inspires us to stay on top of things and never to give up!!!


“Azima is a shelter – a skuilplek. It’s a place of warmth, love and beautiful chaos. It’s our home base, where we can return to no matter what happens. Azima has been here since day one, and without it, I’d be lost. Azima never fails to make me proud. We are a family of smiles.”

– Margarita Charitou

“Azima is not a house, it’s a home, where everyone feels like a family and where we all help and support one another”

– Zara Allie
