House System

At Sri KDU International School (SKIS), the house system is designed to provide a more focused approach towards meeting the co-curricular needs of the students in terms of engagement in social learning opportunities and interaction within a community in the context of the school. Whilst based loosely on the English school house system, the house system in SKIS differs in terms of responsibilities of the Heads of Houses, in that, the pastoral care role is primarily exercised through other structures in the school such as the Form Tutors and Year Leaders.

The four Houses are:

  • Coubertin – Red
  • Curie – Green
  • Mandela – Blue
  • Shackleton – Yellow

OBJECTIVES OF THE HOUSE SYSTEM

  • To foster a strong school spirit and create bonding amongst students
  • To encourage multi-level participation in school-wide events
  • To encourage a healthy competitive environment
  • To develop student leadership and pastoral skills at both junior and senior levels
  • To promote unity and a common interest between students and staff
