House System

House System

Wollert Secondary College is proud to provide an educational environment that ensures that all students are valued and cared for, feel they are part of the school, and can engage effectively in their learning and experience success.

The House System is a way of organising students where they are expected to work together to achieve common goals and creates a sense of group identity, which is symbolised in a House name and logo. Involvement in leading House based activities challenges students to unite and collaborate in teams with students across year levels, provides younger students with role models to look up to in the older students and gives the older students an opportunity to mentor younger students. The Houses at Wollert Secondary College are named after Victorian Rivers.

The Benefits for Students Include

  • A greater sense of community connection to peers and school.
  • Improved leadership opportunities for students.
  • The inclusion and encouragement of participation and achievement in a variety of activities that include (but are not exclusive to) academic, athletic, performing arts and non-academic/ athletic extracurricular activities.
  • Promotion of student voice, responsibility, teamwork, leadership skills and cooperation.
