BEING PART OF A ‘SCHOOL HOUSE’ – EARNING HOUSE POINTS
Maungakiekie House (Red) Owairaka House (Green) Te Tatua House (Yellow) Maungawhau House (Blue)
Every student of Maungawhau School belongs to a ‘school house’. Earning points for your house is very rewarding and exciting. House points can not only be earned during sport but also in the classroom and playground. Children can earn house points by doing really well in a subject like speeches, participating within the class, showing leadership, helping others and many other ways. House points are also given out on major sporting days if you get a place in your race. Each week the house points are added up and read over the loudspeaker. The aim is to be the house with the most points at the end the year. We would love to see all students wearing their house colours on house competition days, especially on sports days to help build team spirit, participation and create some healthy rivalry between the houses. House shirts will be available for purchase at this year’s school fair at the special rate of $10 each.
