An on-going activity throughout the year, designed to raise school spirit, academic performance and student participation is competition between clans within the school. In keeping with the highlander tradition of Holy Heart, the house system actively consists of a group of teams. Each student belongs to one of six teams: Black, Blue, Green, Orange, Red and Yellow.
Membership in a team is for a lifetime. We hope even our alumni will express an interest in how well their clan is faring in any given year.
Each student and teacher is made a member of a Team on arrival at the school. Both students and teachers participate in activities, such as those during spirit week to help earn points for their clans.
Each year, the Team Championship Trophy is awarded to the Team with the highest points total. Team points are awarded in various categories: academic, sports, music, drama, other extra curricular activities and Inter-House competitions.
