House System

In Primary 4 to 7, there are four house groups (Culmore, Lammy, Brookmount and Tamlaght). These houses are made up of children from each year group. At the beginning of the year, children from Year 7 are voted as Class Captain and Vice Captain from their house groups. House Captains and Vice Captains must set good examples and be role models for other pupils to follow. They stay in these teams until the end of the year. House/Team points are awarded to pupils throughout the day for their good work, being sensible, helpful, good behaviour and participation. Individual children collect house/team points and these contribute to their house/team. Each week, at the School Assembly, the Principal/Vice Principal reads out the Principal Certificate winners (pupils who reach twenty five points). The winning house Team for each week is named and at the end of each term, the overall winning team receives a special reward or trip.

  • Children’s successes are recognised with the reward of points, which are prominently displayed in the classroom.  (Once a point has been rewarded it cannot be removed).
  • This points system has two key targets for the individual child.

1.  Star Certificate (awards)  15 points

2.  Principal’s Certificate 25 points

  • Point system – Children’s individual scores are totalled on a Friday each week and contribute to their house total. (Collection sheets are provided) 10, 8, 6, 4 are awarded each week to the 4 houses.
  • Mrs Mc Gettigan visits classes on a Friday afternoon to award Certificates for Principal Award winners (2 children each week).  These certificates are signed by Principal and teacher and sent home. A photograph of these 16 winners are displayed in a noticeboard in the school.
