Mulgrave School has four House Teams to which each student is assigned. House competitions and events are arranged in the Junior, Middle, and Senior Schools throughout the year with an emphasis on participation and enjoyment.
While our house structure has been a part of Mulgrave for many years, in 2022, students initiated a process to update the house names to be more relevant to our times and values. Following a consultative process, student leaders decided on the theme of ‘local’ animals and Junior School students set out to research options, practice persuasive communication, and ultimately vote on their favourites. Family members are all part of the same house.
In partnership with members of Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) we are very excited to share our house graphics, created by Ryan Johnston, and the stories and symbolism of the animals as told by Sx̱wálhkin (Pete Natrall). We extend our deep gratitude both for the gorgeous artwork, wisdom, and guidance.
