Our House Structure
Mulgrave School has four House Teams to which each student is assigned. New students are assigned with the gift of our teddy bear, Constantine, who is wearing their house shirt colour.
The houses are named after Nobel Prize Winners. House competitions and events are arranged in the Junior, Middle, and Senior Schools throughout the year with an emphasis on participation and enjoyment. One House Captain and two Deputy House Captains from Grades 11 or 12 are selected in June to promote spirit and lead each house in its goal to win the House Cup.
