The House System
At Durga Prasad School, every pupil and staff member is assigned a house. The House system creates competition, promotes good work and behaviour, encourages teamwork, provides opportunities to take on responsibilities and brings everyone in the school together. The House System is designed to incorporate the values and ethos of the school and aims to be an integral part of our school community. Once assigned their house, students will wear a badge of their house colours to indicate which house they belong to. This will develop of social solidarity; where students feel a sense of belonging to something within their community.
House Captains and Vice-Captains
At the beginning of the academic year, each house will join together to vote for their House Captain and Vice-Captain. This is a democratic process that is richly embedded within the school community. Students have the opportunity to have their voices heard through our Student Council, student questionnaires, meeting with the Headteacher and through being a Head Boy or Head Boy.
Throughout the year, students receive points which contribute to the house competitions. Child will receive house points as rewards for things such as good behaviour, good work, Speaking in English and good attitude. You can also win extra points for your house through house events:
- Sports DaySpelling Bees
- QuizzesParent and Child Competitions

Every week, we have a school-wide assembly where we count the individual house points and announce the winning house for the week. Then, at the end of the year, all points are counted and the winning house for the year is announced and awards are distributed.
All the houses compete for the following Trophies.

Those who win 3 or more trophies will be awarded the School Championship.
