Boarding Programme

Interhouse Activities

A varied programme of regular weekend excursions, starting on the first weekend of term is organised for the boarders. Excursions encompass a variety of activities and all boarders are urged to take advantage of the extensive programme. A full list of the activities on offer is communicated to boys and parents at the beginning of each term. Previous activities have included: Super Rugby games, tenpin bowling, movies, archery, quad- biking, go-karting, paintball and Mega Air. We also have a strong relationship with our sister schools, with activities like dinner swaps, Valentine’s Day breakfast and Year 11 cooking classes taking place. The workshop is open (and supervised) for boys to complete school work or begin a new project. The heated swimming pool is also open (and supervised) at set times for the boys to have a swim. In the evenings during the week, the gymnasium and weights room are open (and supervised) for the boys’ use.

There are many interhouse competitions which range frommost sporting codes to drama, debating, singing, chess and film-making. House prefects select and organise teams. Boys are encouraged to volunteer to be in teams, though teams are also selected on merit, based on age group and ability. The opportunities in interhouse activities are great fun and provide leadership skills as well as fostering a special spirit in the House. Boys can earn House colours for their involvement and performance in interhouse events.
