Building Community

Our school house system encourages students to push for the best in themselves and their classmates. As a member of a school house, your child will learn to embrace challenges and work in collaboration with others to set and reach goals.

Each student and teacher is assigned to a school house. Students work together in their houses to complete service projects, organize fundraisers and compete in events such as Sports Day to earn points for their house. These activities encourage teamwork and collaboration, and give students a sense of belonging in their school community.

In the classrooms, teachers can award house points to students for a stellar academic performance, or for embodying one of the school's ideals, such as respect or service.

At the end of each school year, the House Cup is awarded to the school house with the most points - a great point of pride for our students.
