Students in the Junior School join one of four Houses where they work as a team in a range of activities such as the annual Inter-House Shield competition. Students meet in their Houses fortnightly for planning and practice as well as sharing and celebrating.
Every student from Preparatory is placed in a House. Students with a family House association will join same House.
Each House is named after a strong female figure in Australia’s history, and has an Australian animal emblem and an assigned colour.
Poet and writer, Dame Mary Gilmore took part in William Lane’s ill-fated experimental utopia in Paraguay, before returning to Australia to continue to write. She is honoured on Australia’s 10 dollar note. Gilmore House's members wear yellow and their emblem is a kangaroo.
Dorothea Mackellar, probably Australia’s most famous female poet, was born and raised in Sydney and at family properties in the Gunnedah region. Dorothea spoke five languages and wrote her most famous poem My Country while feeling homesick in England. Mackellar House's members wear orange and their emblem is a wombat.
