House System

The four Houses at St Joseph's College bear Aboriginal names. They are:

  • Alcheringa (Dreamtime) – green/white
  • Mereki (Peace-maker) – purple/blue
  • Wundurra (Warrior) – gold/black
  • Yoyangamalde (Champion) – red/white

Each year students and staff, under the direction of the Sports Coordinator, select the House Leaders (Year 11) and Representatives (Years 8, 9 and 10). These students form a part the Student Representative Council, assist at carnivals, inter-house activities and run house meetings. They also assist the Sports Coordinator and Student Coordinator as required.
