Our school empowers students to organise themselves for daily school life by giving them the tools they need to succeed. Students are able to become independent, confident learners, which sets them up to navigate the complexity and challenges of the modern world.
This page is specifically for students currently enrolled at St John Bosco Catholic College Engadine and contains material thought useful by our student leaders and the student body, as determined via student voice initiatives. Be sure to check in regularly for college updates.
St John Bosco College has a House System designed to motivate, recognise and reward the achievements of students across a variety of curricula and co-curricular areas of college life, and build teamwork and a sense of community via membership of a House group within a supportive environment.
The house system is designed to create a positive climate of healthy competition and rivalry between the four House Groups. House activities are intended to cultivate a sense of belonging and add fun, energy, enthusiasm and celebration to the daily experience of school.
Each House competes for the House Trophy. House activities of a sporting, cultural, academic and fundraising nature are organised throughout the year to promote House spirit.
Students are allocated to a House upon arrival at the college with siblings placed in the same House. Two House Captains, along with House Patrons are responsible for the general organisation of each House at the various carnivals and for developing a sense of house spirit.
