NAISAK’s houses are based upon names of four famous meteorites from around the world. Each house is represented by a colour; Murchison (purple), Hoba (red), Loreto (orange) and Esquel (yellow). All students as NAISAK from early years up to and including year 11 are members of a house and compete in various competitions over the course of the year to earn house points. Each term the house point totals are revealed in Assembly and go towards the grand total at the end of the year to see which house will be the champions. All staff at NAISAK are also members of a house and come together multiple times a year in student and staff competitions.
The house system at NAISAK helps to foster and encourage a sense of belonging whilst also developing healthy competition that is not only fun, but that also links to the aims of our curriculum.
Heads of house along with house captains and vice house captains help to support and run competitions throughout the year. We also have house point monitors who are responsible for collecting the points from every class in the school each week.
