The HOUSE system provides an opportunity for students and teachers to communicate with each other. Students should take this opportunity to learn team spirit, share their experiences and knowledge with others, and develop the sense of belonging to our school.
The HOUSES are Chambers, Morrison, Taylor and Williams. Each House is made up of teachers and students from different year groups and classes. All students in our school are assigned to different Houses and are encouraged to participate in activities and competitions for their House. Students are not allowed to change their House during their study in SWYHKCS.
