Student Wellbeing


As the foundation of our care of people, every member of staff and each student belongs to one of the six College Houses – Glover, McAuley, Quinn, Rice, Ryan, Wallace.

The Houses have an integral role in the life of the College serving both as pastoral units and as important vehicles for co-curriculum activities. The Houses compete for Champion House in Academics, Swimming, Cross Country, Athletics and Cultural Activities including House Choir.
