House Culture at Calamvale

House Culture is the lifeblood of the College’s culture. Both in Junior and Secondary, House Spirit and friendly competition permeates all elements of the College. Unlike other schools, House relates to the classroom, extra-curricular participation and attendance, not just sporting carnivals.
Junior School students have the opportunity to win points for their house on a daily basis, as students demonstrating Learner Profile Attributes are rewarded with gold tokens. Every fortnight at assemblies, these tokens are counted and all contribute to the House Spirit Cup in Junior School.
Secondary School’s House Cup, which is made up of six different elements of College culture, is calculated each term, with a combined House Celebration Day for the winning House taking place in the following term. This Term, both Junior and Secondary School will be participating in similar activities.
The following parts of College life contribute:

  •  Student Attendance
  •  Behaviour (report card)
  •  Effort (report card)
  •  Values in Actions Points (allocated in class each lesson)
  •  College Culture (various competitions)
  •  Participation in CAST

Overall, a House can only be victorious if everyone in that House contributes in the best way they can. The first House Cup will be celebrated on Thursday 23 May. Boree, Cobar, Keera and Tharah – who will be the next winners?
