House Organisation

Each student is allocated a House in year 7 which they belong to throughout their schooling at the College. Students are often placed in the same Houses as family members, creating a system steeped in tradition. The House system aims to:

 Increase student engagement within the school through House activities focused on collaboration and team work.

  • Create a House system which allows students to participate in activities from all disciplines in the school.
  • Encourage pride and a sense of belonging through participation in House activities during homeroom.
  • Encourage interest in school activities through healthy, positive competition between Houses.
  • Recognise a range of student achievements through the use of House points.

 

As part of the increased focus on House within the College a House Coordinator has been appointed; Mrs Tamara Murphy. This year has seen the introduction of House Captains who are helping build the profile of House throughout the College by providing: ideas, support during activities, feedback from students and advertising events.

The House system also plays a major part in school activities such as the swimming and athletics carnivals. Students are awarded House Points through participation in activities and as a reward for positive behaviours. These points are displayed on the House Noticeboard and the SEQTA home page.

At the end of the year, the Champion Cup is presented to the House that accumulated the most points throughout the year.
