Our House System
The House system at TPIS has been set up to enhance the sense of community within the school and is based on our school badge/motto “expect the best”. All children are members of a House. The many House events unite children from different classes, ages, cultures and friendship groups to work together. They build vital teamwork skills, pride in themselves and respect for their peers.
The functions of the house are to develop a sense of identity, collegiality and belonging, to promote and celebrate achievement and to provide a platform for inter-school competition. TPIS has three houses each distinguished by a colour and a house name. The names and associated colours are:
Red – Vulcan (the flaming torch which represents light, sport and friendship)
Blue – Amazon (the tree which represents caring for our environment)
Green – Pegasus (the horse which represents energy and enthusiasm)
