House System

The school is divided into four 'Houses' at the Primary, Secondary and Senior Secondary level. Each House has a House Captain and vice captain. It is compulsory for every student to be a member of a House. The main idea of the House System is to provide training in qualities of leadership, co-operation, mutual understanding and self reliance. Different types of activities are organized under the House System such as dramatics, elocution, quiz, recitation, debate, group song, dance etc.

When we plant a rose seed in the earth, we notice it is small, but we do not criticize it as rootless and stem less. We treat it as a seed, giving it the water and nourishment required of a seed. When it first shoots up out of the earth, we don't condemn it as immature and underdeveloped, nor do we criticize the buds for not being open when they appear.

We stand in wonder at the process taking place, and give the plant the care it needs at each stage of its development. The rose is a rose from the time it is a seed to the time it dies. Within it, at all times, it contains its whole potential. It seems to be constantly in the process of change: Yet at each state, at each moment, it is perfectly all right as it is. A flower is not better when it blooms than when it is merely a bud; at each stage it is the same thing — a flower in the process of expressing its potential.

As we read this, we couldn't help but think of our own children. Do we underestimate their potential? Are we too critical of them while they are still learning? Do we look too far ahead in their development, wishing that they were older, wiser or more mature? Or do we see them as a flower, not yet fully bloomed, but still beautiful, remarkable and full of unimaginable promise? This is the reason we have kept the names of houses as different flowers…… These four houses are: Lily, Jasmine, Rose, Tulip
