IPS Upper Secondary Houses

Our unique house system is more than just a tradition?it’s a community-building experience designed with our students in mind.

At the heart of this system is our commitment to reinforcing core values, fostering inter-grade relationships, and ensuring every student feels connected and valued.

Dive into our vibrant houses: Resilience in Red, Reflection in Blue, Respect in Yellow, and Responsibility in Green. Each house represents more than a colour or a name; it embodies a family within the school community. With the guidance of a dedicated teacher serving as the head-of-house and the leadership of elected captains from each grade, our houses stand as pillars of unity and spirit.

But it’s not all about camaraderie. Our houses also engage in thrilling competitions, showcasing talents from academics and athletics to the arts. Whether students shine individually or as a team, there’s an opportunity for everyone to be recognised. As houses earn points through their victories, the excitement builds throughout the term, culminating in a grand reward outing for the top-performing house.

From challenges like Foosball and Photography to Maths Relay, Trivia Relay, Free, and the ever-popular Name-That-Tune, there’s never a dull moment in our house system.
