House Structure

House Structure

Our House System is designed to enable students to further develop a sense of identity and belonging at Geelong Baptist College. Our three Houses are: Sladen (Green), Ormond (Red) and Austin (Yellow).

 

Each student is part of a House and participates as part of that House in various activities and College events including the swimming carnival, athletics carnival and cross-country carnival.

 

Students can also earn individual house points through their daily efforts at the College through uniform, positive behaviour, cultural and academic contributions. These individual Merit points are collected each term and go into the house totals to determine the winner of the House Trophy at the end of the year.

 

Each house has two captains who are elected by their house members. 

 

The aim for each house is to build a team spirit and to live out the concepts of cooperation, participation, encouragement and recognition of a wide range of students’ gifts and talents.
