House System

The House system is alive in many British schools and is an inheritance of the old English Boarding Public Schools. Although it originally applied only to boarders, it later included day students; and this is the tradition that has formed part of Saint George’s College since its foundation. Children of Old Georgians and younger brothers and sisters of students in the school inherit the House of their seniors. St George’s College, Quilmes, has always had three houses, historically, in the Prep School: Stevenson, Roberts and Haxell. Jackson, a fourth House, became part of this system as from February, 2001. Competitions amongst these four Houses do not only take place on the sports fields. Throughout the year students participate in different inter-house activities such as Music, Art, Drama.

Likewise, on entry into the College each student is assigned to one of four Houses: Agar, Farran, Lockwood, or Cutts. Each house is under the control of a Housemaster. During the year, many interhouse sports and academic competitions take place. These events are varied and allow all members to get involved. Students take house events very seriously and enjoy the camaraderie. The senior students are given the responsibility of forming and coaching their respective teams.
