House System

At Caroline Chisholm, we have 4 houses that make up our house system, each named after an Australian city:

Every student and member of staff is placed into one of the four houses, and we keep families together.  Our house system is designed to embody the values and ethos of our school, and aims to be an integral part of our school community.

We want students to be proud of their school and their house and work with peers of all ages. Our house system provides each student with:

  • A sense of belonging/identity within the school community
  • Opportunities to develop social, intellectual, physical and practical skills
  • A sense of achievement both inside and outside of the classroom
  • Fun and excitement through competition
  • Opportunities for leadership
  • An awareness of individual and collective responsibility

As part of our house system, in 2019 we launched our 'House Parliament' where we used our House Captains to set up 5 different councils to work on important projects within our school:

Charity Council
Community Council
Environment Council
Learning Council
Wellbeing Council
