House events are categorised into Traditional or Contemporary sections. Examples of some of the current House events are:

  • Traditional: Chess, Squash, Public Speaking and Tennis
  • Contemporary: Frisbee Golf, Lip Sync, FIFA, Giant Jenga, Dodgeball and Tug of War

The major House events are House Music and House Track and Field which take place at the beginning and the end of the year respectively. House Weeks take place through the year between these two events. During a House Week each house leads competitive events which contribute to the House Cup as well as taking part in fundraising, outreach and raising awareness for their chosen local charity.
