To encourage the pursuit of excellence, whether in sport or within the academic and pastoral life of the school, each child from Year 1 onwards is assigned to one of four houses. The school houses’ names represent the heritage, history, nature and culture of Cyprus:
Children are given house points for acts of kindness, particularly good behaviour or notable academic or sporting achievement. They are highly motivated by this structure and quickly form an allegiance to their house.
As each house has members from Year 1 all the way through to Year 13, the system also encourages vertical integration within the school. A sense of friendly fun and competition is evident as the house points are counted and the House Cup is awarded at the end of week Celebration Assembly. The annual sports days in spring are a fun-filled day of inter-house competitive races, where children are cheered on by enthusiastic parents.
