The House System

Village School girls develop a sense of teamwork and responsibility at an early age. From Lower I (Year 1), girls are put into houses: Swifts or Swallows, which they keep until they move up to Transition (Year 3). They then join the Middle and Upper School houses of Eagles and Falcons.

Girls are encouraged to develop an allegiance to their house, which is demonstrated through the acquisition of house points. These are awarded for courteous behaviour, good work and effort on and off the sports field. Our inter-house tournaments, student-run competitions and annual sports day promote a healthy sense of both competition and camaraderie.

In Year 6, with their growing maturity, the girls take on more responsibility. They are appointed as school officers and, as such, give help and support to teachers and younger girls alike. We believe that this relationship provides valuable life skills for all the children.


"I can promise you that women working together — linked, informed, and educated — can bring peace and prosperity to this forsaken planet.”
