House System

The RBIS Houses
The RBIS Houses are designed to embody the values and ethos of our school and are an integral part of our school community.

Our Houses' main aim is to provide every student in each house with a sense of belonging within the school community, opportunities to develop social, intellectual, physical and practical skills, a sense of achievement both inside and outside of the classroom including through the fun and excitement of inter-house competitions.

Students are assigned to one of our four Houses when they join the EY, Primary, Middle or Senior sections of the school; entering a system which is designed to develop an awareness of individual and collective responsibility and opportunities for student leadership. Each house has two designated elected House Captains / Vice-captains (Primary and Secondary) who will act as representatives for all the students in their house throughout the year by: helping coordinate house teams, organise activities and events and represent their house at relevant meetings.

Four different Houses at the heart of one RBIS Home

Unicorn House embodies extreme courage, virtue and strength. The white colour of Unicorn House represents peace and sincerity.
Dragon House signifies the defense of treasure through valour. The red colour of Dragon House represents strength and fairness.
Lion House characterizes loyalty. The blue colour of Lion House represents truth and loyalty.
Phoenix House symbolizes resurrection and rebirth. The gold colour of Phoenix House represents generosity and elevation of the mind.

The House Point System

Points can be awarded to a member of a house for a number of reasons e.g.
• Excellence (sporting, behaviour, attendance, etc.)
• Participation (theatre, house events, etc.)
• Perseverance (personal hardship, dedication, etc.)
• Effort (extra-curricular activities, etc.)
• Courtesy (assistance, generosity, kindness, etc.)
• Academic work and endeavour.

One House Point = Good
Two House Points = Very Good
Three House Points = Excellent
Four and Five House Points =  Exceptional (Reserved for Head of Sections only and awarded to students whose
achievements have surpassed the previous three-point scale and/or represented RBIS in our wider
community, nationally or internationally).

Bronze, silver and gold award winners will receive their certificates during assemblies. 
Platinum award winners are recognised at the End of Year Assembly.
The winning House will also be announced during the ceremony and the House Captains will be presented with the House Champions Shield.
