On Wednesday, 27th June 2012, St. Dominic Savio High School had the Inauguration of the House System at the Assembly. It was a display of colours depicting the various houses of the school:
The Compere informed the assembly that ‘Team work is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. The house system helps to foster in the student a sense of collective responsibility and solidarity. The house system lays emphasis on team efforts rather than individual self.’
The main objectives of the house system are:
1. To conduct the affairs of the houses on the principles of a well-run family with the house mistress/master
as the head.
2. To assist in the maintenance of discipline, developing leadership and sound competitive spirit.
3. To develop in the pupils a civic sense and loyalty to the school.
The Leaders and Vice Captains of the various houses accompanied by their house teachers came forward to take their oath and promise.
Red House under the patronage of Blessed Michael Rua, the first successor of St. John Bosco.
Blue House under the patronage of Blessed Artemide Zatti a Salesian brother who was an embodiment of service and compassion.
Green House under the patronage of Mickey Magone a firebrand student of Don Bosco who changed his way of life on account of the influence of Don Bosco.
Yellow House under the patronage of Blessed Philip Rinaldi a master of Salesian ways and Spirituality.
Fr. Rector then declared the House System of St. Dominic Savio High School for the year 2012-2013 open and shared a few thoughts on Team work and team spirit.
