House System & Competition

The purpose of House Teams at GICS is for group loyalty, a sense of belonging, and school spirit. House Teams foster cross-age grouping from TK/K to Grade 5 in order to continue to develop a school culture.


  • To foster a ‘family culture’ of caring, nurturing and support for each other.
  • To provide our Grade 5 students with an opportunity to be school leaders, decision makers and positive role models.
  • To provide an opportunity for our students to work with students across the school that they do not interact within class or in the playground.
  • To create another opportunity for a sense of belonging.
  • To have fun and learn with members of our learning community of all ages


House Captains work with Student Council Representatives to develop whole school initiatives in sports, debates, cultural, academic and charity drives.

2018-19 House Captains are:

Blue:           Emilia K. and Thor G. and Chrissette B.-H.
Red:            Jackson T. and Roman A. and Emma F.-H. 
Green:       Ariana D. and Nala F. and Annie Lu R.
Yellow:      Madeleine L. and Oliver L.



House Sporting Events are organized sports at lunch recess for TK/K–2nd grade and 3rd–5th grades.
