College Houses Overview
The College has four houses (factions): Booth, Graham, Elliot and Carmichael.
Staff are assigned a house. Families are assigned a house upon enrolment and all children from the same family are assigned to the same house for the duration of their time at the College. Students accumulate points for their house during the year in many ways, including through participation in sporting events and earning of EPS points.
The College houses are based on the Wordless Book:

When man was created, he was sinless, but he sinned.
Christ was sent from heaven, from the skies. Blue.
He was the first missionary.
He shed His blood. Red
To make a way back to the Father in Heaven. Gold
