House system

A House is an institution by itself, within an institution”. To inspire a healthy sense of competition, students and teachers of Loyola International School have been allocated one of the four houses, which symbolize the school’s Motto, “Listen, Learn, Lead”. Each house is headed by a ‘House Co-ordinator’, ‘House Master’, ‘Team Members’ and ‘House Captains’. Each house has a specific name, color, and motto. Houses compete with each other and try to excel in different arenas to make their house win. At the end of every academic year, a winning house is declared and felicitated.

The aim of starting the house system in school is to:

  • Prepare pupils to play different kinds of roles.
  • Develop the child’s personality and integrity.
  • Develop the spirit of healthy competition amongst children.
  • Inculcate in the child, respect for seniors and a caring attitude towards juniors.
