House System

St. Joseph’s International School has four “Houses”, named after schools . They are Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, Albert Einstein, Alexander Graham Bell, Homi J. Bhabha. Each House has a House Leader and Student Leaders. Our school is a community of learners and the House system aims to reflect these core values.

The House system aims to give students an identity and sense of pride in a supportive, secure environment. The Houses provide for positive competition and a closer rapport between students and teachers. They also aim to help new staff and students adapt to the culture of St. Joseph’s International School.

The Houses compete in a number of sporting, academic and cultural activities for points. The classes for each House have an Academic Effort/Participation weekly record that also gains House points. Each session the winning House receives the House shield and other prizes.

The House system is an integral and vibrant part of the school’s culture. The House system is designed to reflect and enhance the values of our school as they are described in the charter.

The core values are explained as self-development, intellectual empowerment and life-long learning within the diversity and strength of our one community. The four ‘cornerstones’ of St. Joseph’s International School are discipline, tradition, respect and quality co-education. Together, these aspects make up the core values, philosophy, ideology of the school and they ‘give us our clear direction and pathway’.
