The House System:
The House System has been designed to
encourage teamwork, cooperation, fair play, to offer students opportunities to
participate in new and challenging activities and provide suitable teams for
competitive school events. During the school year students compete in
their houses for the House Trophy which is presented at the end of the academic
House Points are awarded in four areas
throughout the academic year:
– Including Sports Day and Inter-house Cross Country
– Including Maths Day, The Spelling Bee, Science Day
– Including The Talent Show and Art Competitions
Merit System – Each merit awarded also counts as a House Point
All Students and staff at MIS belong to
one of the following houses:
House who compete in green shirts.
House who compete in blue shirts.
House who compete in red shirts.
House who compete in yellow shirts.
Each house has four student House
Captains. The students are encouraged, whenever possible, to take responsibility
for the organization and selection of teams for house events. This is
overseen by the staff House Captain for each house.
It is envisaged that all students will
represent their house on several occasions during the school year, whether it
be in an area where they excel or in an activity that they are trying for the
first time. In this way students are given the opportunity to experience new
activities in a supportive environment which will help to build confidence and
