Sport Houses

House System

At Wahroonga Public School our students are proud to represent their sporting 'House'. There are four school Houses:

  • Northcott (yellow)
  • Parkes (blue)
  • Greentrees (red)
  • Hughes (green)

Each House has a girl and boy Captain and Vice Captain. These children are elected by their peers.

House points are earned in House sport competitions, for demonstrating leadership and displaying initiative. To encourage participation at swimming and athletics carnivals, children are awarded House points for participating in an event, irrespective of the result.

Wahroonga Public School offers a comprehensive sporting program from Kindergarten to Year 6. The emphasis in the early years is on developing the children's gross motor skills. School sport aims to develop positive attitudes to health and fitness and endeavours to foster team spirit.

Children from K - 4 are required to wear the school's sports uniform with the yellow top or green with yellow sides while the seniors (5-6) wear the purple top or green with purple sides. Their House colour patch is to be sewn on to the left sleeve, 10cm from the shoulder hem. Siblings are placed in the same House. Children wear their sports uniform with sports shoes on the day their class has sport.
