House Fun is Heating Up!

Over the past month we’ve celebrated joyful learning through some exciting Prem House competitions. At different moments, multiple Air, Earth, Fire, and Water House members shone brightly. Here is a quick recap of some of the exciting things our student House Captains have made possible:

March Maths Pi Day contests included Minute-to-Win-it math games in the JS, Math Team Trivia for MS and HS, and the numbers of Pi Recitation contests. Yejun in Earth Grade 9 remembered 59 digits of Pi, while Vivian in Air Grade 10 recited 50! Impressive moves that helped their Houses move forward; well done to all who took part in these competitions.

Moving into April, we sadly said goodbye to four of our incredible G12 Captains who have been with our House program for years. We’d like to thank Steve (Earth), Daniel (Air), Nico (Water), and Stanley (Fire) for their exceptional leadership over the years in planning events and cheering their teams to various victories. We couldn’t have done it without you!















In honour of the Grade 12s official last day of high school classes last Friday, April 21st, we felt it only right to go out on a HUGE HOUSE HIGH in the form of House Dodgeball. Nearly 100 senior school students came to the Sports Hall at lunch, laughing and cheering each other on in some of the most epic dodgeball games I’ve ever seen. After three exciting 3-minute rounds of play, this many players were left standing total: Earth = 34, Water = 17, Air = 13, and Fire = 10. Then, as it was only right, we played a final round of Grade 12s (about 25 of them) against about 80 Grade 6 through Grade 11. I’ve never laughed so hard. Clearly, our Grade 12s are prepared for anything, as you can see in the wonderful pictures attached. We all wish them good luck in their exams and thank them for a wonderful many years representing their Prem Houses. 

Wish us all luck as we go forward preparing for the House Shout, our big choral competition finale of the year. Houses are picking songs and re-writing lyrics this week and next. Long live Prem Houses!!!
