We work each week towards gaining house points, awarded for good behaviour, attitude and work, for our house. These points are then collected up from both schools and the house with the most points is awarded the “House Cup” at the end of the week.
We also have regular intraschool sporting events, such as multi-skills, swimming, athletics, golf, netball, football, cricket in which the different houses compete against each other.
