A foreword from Mr McKenna


The House System, for me, is not just about the competition between Houses (although this is very important!), but is more about the collaboration within Houses. Within year groups, students get a real chance to bond, work together for the collective good, and build positive relationships with their ‘House’ mates. In the events where we have a cross-pollination of Year Groups, I believe the benefits to the students are immeasurable. These events are some of the few times in a student’s school life where they will work closely with other Challoner boys, and girls, from very different age and friendship groups. Throughout my years here, I have loved witnessing students from every Key Stage working together at Super Six House Events in a collaborative and purposeful way – often establishing friendships, based on mutual respect, that will last for years.
I hope that the House System will continue to give every student in our school community a chance to: express themselves, build friendships, learn new skills, and celebrate their God-given talents.
