The House system evokes a sense of pride and collegiality amongst the students and is an important part of their life at the College.

The ELTHAM College House system furthers each students’ sense of belonging and connection with school life. 

Staff also join Houses, fostering another avenue for positive connections between students and staff.

In the Junior School all students participate in Termly House Challenges which are fun, exciting and inspiring. 

In Year 7 students have their Camp experience in their House groups, with each student being mentored by a Year 11 student leader from their same House. Events are developed by Year 11 Mentors and implemented across the year with the guidance of both the Year 7 Coordinator and Coordinator of Student Leadership.

Each House is led by a group of Captains and Leaders selected from both Junior and Senior School. These groups are mentored by staff House Leaders.

Across the year there are a number of events that students participate in to earn points towards the overall total, culminating in the award of the ELTHAM College House Cup at the end of the year - a highly sought after prize. 

  • House Cup

  • House Swimming 
  • House Athletics 
  • House Cross-Country
  • And more through student leadership initiatives.
