Introducing our new School Houses

Extraordinary people who are Kind, Strong and Brave

You may remember ever since the summer we have been getting ideas for our school houses. Now the students are settled we pulled all the ideas together and worked with the school leaders to make a decision. We chose people from all over the world who inspire us, people who sum up the values of our school and the Bolder way. Men and women who are Kind, Strong and Brave. The people the houses have been named after are
