College House System
The wellbeing of students goes beyond the classroom. Our College four house system builds a team environment in which students can fulfil their potential.
Home rooms are arranged across vertical year groups. Students build a strong sense of loyalty to their house and form strong relationships across the age groups. Each house, with its special uniqueness looks to challenge, inspire and support students.

The flora and fauna were chosen for their resilience to adversity. The Black Beak Duck Orchid is a critically endangered native species that requires fire and smoke for seeds to germinate. After the 2020 Kangaroo Island bushfires, four new populations were observed along the fire scar.
Our virtue of Courage strengthens us to be bold and daring in our learning and to speak for social justice.
