Each house has its own identity that goes beyond the house colour, the house animal or the allegiance to house sports teams. The houses work together as a whole house to compete in a broad range of competitions throughout the school year, from House Music to debating to sports. Students learn to work together and succeed together. They celebrate together at house parties and house dinners, and develop a strong sense of belonging. Key to this is the way they take responsibility for each other and care for each other. Senior students in the College have plenty of opportunity to put into practice the leadership and team-building skills they have learned as they take responsibility for organising house teams, house events, and the house trips.
