The purpose of the House System is to instill a sense of camaraderie and citizenship amongst the student body. Students learn to be responsible citizens by
- Reading, understanding and respecting the tenets set forth
- To understand their rights and duties towards society
- Committing to participate responsibly in school life
- Maintaining high standards throughout the year.
A strong school spirit is also engendered amongst the students as they strive to represent their respective house through personal academic, physical, cultural and social excellence in performance.
The aim of the House System is to give pupils a focus of identity outside their class group. It provides a healthy competitive spirit in sports, even as academic excellence is fostered by added incentive to work hard in subject areas. Finally, students are able to interact with other students and staff outside their own year group, thus creating a strong sense of community and citizenship.
The houses are as follows:
