House system

Our House Leaders: 
Mrs Rocks (St. Anne), Ms Carrick (St.Stephen) Mr Gormally (St. Philomena),
Ms Hampshire (St. Ignatius), Ms Berlo (St. Richard) Mr Wilbraham (St. Elizabeth)

 

The Houses will meet once every term for a House Assembly and each house will produce a report on the school website at the end of each term highlighting the activities and achievements of the students. A range of activities are planned over the next couple of years including a sponsored rowing competition, spelling BEE, dance, music and drama competitions, table tennis tournament, dodgeball, football, netball, rounders and basketball competitions.

Every member of Holy family including students, teachers, support and administrative staff are allocated to a house. This is to give everyone a sense of identity and belonging. Staff events will encourage competition and well-being as well as contributing valuable points to the Houses.

Why have a House System?

Pride – A sense of belonging to a House and forging friendships with different groups of students.
Teamwork – Working with other age groups to achieve a common goal.
Leadership – Taking lead roles in projects, tournaments and competitions.

What are the benefits?

Healthy competition – To be humble in victory and magnanimous in defeat.
Citizenship – Seeing beyond the school, working on charity fund raising events for local and international causes.
Participation – Doing your best not only for yourself but also for your House.
