Alphington Primary School

School Connectedness

With the purpose of building a sense of connectedness across the school, the APS House System was established in 2020 by the Year 6 Student Leadership Team. Drawing upon our school’s location and connection to the environment, students worked with local First Nations Leaders to establish the name of each house, reflecting the traditional language of the Wurundjeri People.

Students are awarded points based upon different criteria that were established and agreed upon by the 2021 Student Leadership Team. All students represent their House across a range of events throughout the year.

Houses compete for the House Shield. A stunning award designed by a parent in collaboration with the Student Leadership Team. The shield portrays the emblems of the four houses, images created by a student through as part of an art competition.
