Aquinas Catholic College Menai

The house system

The College is committed to ensuring that learning goes beyond the classroom and we strive to develop the physical, mental, spiritual and artistic talents of our students. It is expected that teachers commit themselves to the full life of the College and offer their talents for the betterment of students.


The Four Houses


The Houses are led by Senior students elected as House Captains and assisted by a nominated House Co-ordinator. House activities are designed to add some fun to the experience of school and they create a positive climate of competition and rivalry between the four groups. Another objective of the House System is to develop opportunities for students of different ages to mix and work together with older students assisting younger students in some projects. These House connections have particular significance in the organisation and celebration of Aquinas Day. They also form the basis for the organisation of sporting carnivals.


The system of vertical houses is designed to enrich the co-curricula life of the College. Each House has approximately 220 students from all year groups.
