House Systems

 

The school operates a four house system for inter-school sporting competitions. The houses are named after Australian native plants. House Colours are:
Wattle – Yellow, Banksia– Red, Melaleuca – Green and Waratah – Blue
 
All children are allocated to a House on enrolment with a view to keeping families in the same House whilst endeavouring to maintain boy/girl age group balance.
