House Systems
The school operates a four house system for inter-school sporting competitions. The houses
are named after Australian flora. House Colours are:
Acacia – Yellow, Grevillia – Green, Banksia - Red
 
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.
