House System

House System

Community spirit is fundamental to the ICHK ethos, and nowhere is this more apparent than through the Dynasty House System.

When students start secondary school they are allocated a House (Ming, Song or Tang), which are each led by three House Captains and representatives from each year group.

The House system is built on a foundation of friendly competition, so that the many activities in which the students go head-to-head are an opportunity both to celebrate their own successes but also to commend and applaud the successes of others.

This friendly rivalry is given ample opportunity to manifest itself in a wide-range of inter-house events, including House Sports, Charity Fund Raising and the Arts.

Students earn House points during the year and the House with the most points at the end of the year will be awarded the House Cup.

The aim is to create a spirit of friendly competition, collaboration and cooperation. Our reputation for fair play and sportsmanship is well established in the interschool competitions, in which we regularly punch above our weight.

The system encourages students to feel part of a team, develop a sense of pride, enhance leadership and organisation skills and above all integrate themselves as part of the ICHK community. We encourage all students to participate in the House system, reach beyond their comfort zones, try something new and have fun.
