House Organisation

There are four main house teams that children are assigned to at GHS.

Children from the same families will be placed in the same house. These groups have been named after islands in our Gulf and are also associated with a colour. This will help our younger students identify their group. 
Tee-shirts of the house colour are to be worn on house days.

Staff members are also assigned to a house to work together with our students encouraging:

good sportsmanship - team comradery - effective communication - healthy team spirit - the pursuit of success
