House & Homerooms

Each of our students is under the specific care of a Homeroom Teacher.  There are seven homerooms in each of the four College Houses, and each group consists of students from Years 7 to 12, which we call a Vertical Homeroom.  This style of homeroom allows students from Year 7 to meet and interact with students from other year levels, giving them ample opportunity to relate closely with students of all age groups.

Each House has a dedicate House Coordinator, who coordinates the activities of each House and works closely with the teachers and students.  They are always available to both students and parents.

Houses participate in a number of community building events, such as the annual sporting carnivals (athletics, swimming and cross-country), House Weeks (raising money for a chosen charity through a week of fundraising and awareness activities) and Project Compassion during Lent.
