house sport teams at wales st primary thornbury

House teams

Every child at Wales Street is assigned a ‘house’ when they enrol. Siblings will be grouped in the same houses. We have four houses here at Wales Street, all named after the streets that border the school:

  • Clyde = red
  • Speight = green
  • St David = yellow
  • Wales = blue

House Captains are elected by the students in Grade 5 and 6 classes at the end of the year for the  following year.

Our annual Athletics Carnival in Term 2 and Swimming Carnival in Term 4 provide a great opportunity for students to compete for and cheer on their house team. From these events, Wales Street representatives are selected for the District athletics and swimming carnivals.
