House System

House System

When children join our school family they are arranged into one of four House Groups: St Rose of Lima, St Francis of Assisi, St Martha and St John Neumann.  Each House is led by an elected House Captain chosen from the Year 6 pupils by the children within that House. 

The House groups meet every fortnight led by their House Captains to:

  • Discuss upcoming school events
  • Share ideas for school improvement
  • Choose their own charity and organise fundraising activities
  • Celebrate achievements within the House team 
  • Provide encouragement to each other, build the skills of cooperation, listening and negotiation


The House Captains are also responsible for collecting the House Points earned by each class weekly and reporting these in our Mission Assemblies to the whole school, staff and visiting friends and family.  They play an integral role on sports' day by leading their teams through a range of sporting challenges and providing encouragement as each House strives to be the champions!
