Sports House System

Our two school Houses – St Anne’s and St Joseph’s contribute to St Joseph’s spirit in many ways. Each House has their own colour and, when House events are run, all the students don their colours in support of their House.

The House events encourage students to develop friendships across different year levels and extend their teamwork skills. House events are run throughout the year which include: Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics.

The Structure

St Joseph’s has two Houses from Kindergarten to Year 6. Students stay in the allocated House throughout their schooling at St Joseph’s. Students are placed in the same House as siblings or the house their parent was in, if applicable.
