House System

At Wright Robinson College our students and staff are all members of houses.

Each house is named after an inspirational character, chosen by the students themselves as having qualities they strive for.

When your child begins Year 7 they will become a member of one of the College’s Houses. House Points are awarded to students for academic achievement, effort in class, positive contributions to all aspects of college life and community involvement. These points are collected on a weekly basis. The weekly House point totals are then displayed on the College Television system and the winning House at the end of each term receives a House prize. In addition to the House team prize individuals gaining high numbers of house points are rewarded with certificates and prizes in assemblies. There are regular inter-house sports competitions  and academic challenges for which housepoints can be earned.
