House System

The College's House structure forms another team or family to which our students belong. 

Each form class is aligned to a House. Many of our internal sporting and cultural activities are conducted as House competitions, with boys competing for the House Shield which was donated by Mr R Tagg. The Wednesday Assembly period sees boys gather in their House Year groups. 

The houses are:

Chanel after St. Peter Chanel, first martyr of the Pacific. Symbolized by RED for martyrdom. 

Marcellin after Marcellin Champagnat, founder of the Marist Brothers. Symbolized by BLUE, the Marist colour. 

Pompallier after the founder of the Catholic Church in New Zealand. Symbolized by GREEN, expressive of the hopes Bishop Pompallier had for New Zealand. 

Roncalli after Pope John XXIII, whose surname it was, and whose papacy occurred at the time that St. John’s was founded. Symbolized by GOLD, the Papal colour.
