To inspire a healthy sense of competition, students of Sacred Heart International School have been
allocated in one of the four houses which symbolize the school’s values. Students develop a sense
of belonging and a feeling of unity in being a part of a specific house.
The four houses are named Blue House, Green House, Red House and Yellow House, which
upholds the values of courage, love, valour and intellect.
Each house is led by the House Mistress/Master for a year. The Captain and Vice-captain guide
their teams on all fronts and play a vital role in leading their team to victory in all events. Participating
in various inter-house competitions not only gives the students a chance to display their talent but
also helps them learn valuable lessons on team work and selfless service. Be it a debate, quiz or
sports event, students give their best to win laurels and house points. Participation in various
activities brings the house honour and gives the students a sense of pride.
All students from class I and above are placed in the four houses and all activities academic, co-
curricular and intermural, are based on inter-house competitions.
The house system was devised to promote team spirit and a sense of belonging to the school. Also,
this enables the senior students of the school to provide care and direction to their junior
schoolmates. The House System provides excellent opportunities for student leadership and peer
group support. Aided by dedicated staff members, and house captains, it is a remarkable medium for
enabling students of different ages to bond together and operate as a cohesive family. Houses are a
common and successful way of building a superb school community and spirit. The Houses compete
in different sporting, cultural, and academic competitions, and provide an excellent way to synergize
pupils of different classes and ages, all of whom have a common goal and purpose.
