Sport House System
Our house system is linked to a range of co-curricular activities, including sporting events, performances, social justice and community service. Points for participation and achievements in such events will accumulate over time with the point tallies being a way of promoting healthy competitions between the houses.
St Bede’s has four school houses that contribute to the spirit and culture of our College. Each House has their own colour and is aligned to one of our four pillars.
These houses and themes shape the identity and wellbeing direction our College. Each of the houses have a strong connection to our College Patron, St Bede and are associated with religious orders that had a significant impact in the growth of Catholicism within our local area
