Our House System provides a supportive environment that encourages friendly competition, provides opportunities for students to assume responsibility and develop leadership abilities and one that enables students to make a positive contribution to their local community.
We promote achievement of all students in its widest forms in a totally positive way, from the classroom to the sports field and helping out around the school to Drama productions. It is also a way of developing vertical integration in the school to complement the horizontal integration that the year system provides.
The House identity is highlighted by regular assemblies where the House Captains develop the Enterprise Skills of Leadership, Communication and Teamwork through the active participation of all students. Also each House has a House motif on the school blouse so that it is clear to all students which House they belong to. Each House has an achievements notice board to promote celebration of success.
Our House system is praised as an aspect of our school that is valued by students. We believe that not only does it teach students important skills it develops in them a true sense of school community. The commitment of the House system to fund raising for good causes is central to our teaching of good citizenship.
