TRAINING FOR LEADERSHIP/ HOUSE SYSTEM
The house system is widely used in British schools and schools that model themselves after the British system in countries with past British colonial ties, such as Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, India, and Singapore. The system began in boarding schools, where students actually ate, drank, and slept in individual houses during school terms. The feature of the houses most popular with students is the competitions; houses compete on the basis of academics, attendance. Academic competition is based on GPA. Houses are given points on the basis of how house teams perform in academic quick recall competitions.
