House System

Pastoral Care underpins all that is done at Frederick Irwin Anglican School. In the Secondary School, Pastoral Care is primarily delivered via the House System.

Each student is assigned to one of the six Houses; each House is led by a Head of House and Assistant Head of House. Each House has seven House Groups with a House Group Teacher assigned to each.

House Groups are made up of students from Years 8 to 12 with Year 7s joining the House Groups at the start of Term 3 as part of the Year 7 Transition programme. Siblings are assigned to the same House and are often in the same House Group.

The Heads of House, together with the House Group Teachers, provide support in all aspects of a student’s life at school; helping them to achieve academically whilst overseeing their social and mental health and well-being. House Groups meet together at the start of every day.
