Our School Houses

Halebank C E Primary School is divided into units called "houses" and each student is allocated to one house at the moment of enrollment. Houses may compete with one another at sports and maybe in other ways, thus providing a focus for group loyalty.

Encouraging leadership – the house system enables children to encourage their housemates and lead each other in spirited competition. encouraging team spirit – provides children with a variety of ways for them to earn points for their team so that everyone can contribute.Currently every child can be awarded house points for demonstrating any of the Christian values, following school rules and routines, working hard or being helpful etc.

At the end of each week all the house points are added up and, in our Friday worship, our House Captains announce how many points their team has achieved over the week. The House Captains have decided on the rewards given to the winning house each week. One team win earns every house member 10 minutes extra playtime together and more than one win in a row earns the team a treat day in school.

At Halebank our houses are St Matthew, St Mark, St Luke and St John.


What is the significance of Matthew Mark Luke and John?

Their names are attached to the first four books of the New Testament. And most important of all, their writings are almost all we have describing the mortal life of Jesus Christ and the things He said. The first four books of the New Testament are called the Gospels.
