House Activities

Canterbury Girls' Secondary College has a very strong House system which underpins many of the activities at the College.

The four Houses, named after past principals, are Brennan (Yellow), Cattanach (Green), Flynn (Blue) and Macdonald (Red). The Houses provide leadership opportunities for students. Two senior students are elected as House Captains each year.

In the Middle School, there are Sub school House Captains elected from Years 7-9 to assist the Senior Captains. The House Captains are supported by House Liaison teachers who act as mentors to support student leaders and assist in the development of leadership skills. House Captains are involved in organising teams and umpires for sporting events as well as organising House meetings and assemblies.

House noticeboards keep students up to date about House activities. High participation rates indicate the support and enjoyment students gain by being involved in House activities. The awarding of House colours to individual students occurs at the final school assembly and House colours are proudly worn on blazer pockets.

House activities are an integral part of the life of the College and the winning of House points through the year culminates in the awarding of the House Trophy at the final College assembly.

House activities are essentially student driven and include a wide range of sports, chorals, debating, dance and drama.
