All the PaRK IS community is organised into Houses: Hillary, Cousteau, Vasco da Gama and Armstrong. The House System promotes a sense of belonging across age groups and a degree of friendly competition between students. It provides opportunities for teachers and students to develop all aspects of their growth and learning: personality, morality, creativity, knowledge and skills. The activities promote values of fair play, teamwork, citizenship, mutual responsibility, self-discipline, initiative, perseverance and resilience. Participation in activities contributes to excellence in academic, social, sporting and cultural fields. Every house carries the name of one of the great explorers of human history. Each house represents a type of exploration (sea, mountain, deep ocean and space), each explorer comes from a different country.
PaRK IS has grown and it is time to ‘re-imagine’ our Houses and re-design the logos. The 4 great adventurers of the sea, land, air and universe need a partner! So, we are very excited to announce that we will now have 4 new inspiring women in our Houses’ system, one for each House, to honour their unique feats! All students have now voted for their new nominees, whose names will be announced by the end of this school year - stay tuned! Go HOUSES!
