At the beginning of the year, all North Star Academy students are placed in a HOUSE . Each HOUSE represents a colour and quality (Ruby: Knowledge, Sapphire: Strength, Amber: Integrity, Emerald: Compassion.) The purpose of having HOUSES is to encourage SCHOOL SPIRIT, BELONGING, ACADEMIC IMPORTANCE and BEING A GOOD SAMARITAN.
As a group, the students can work together to attain a mutual goal by collecting points for their HOUSE. This can be done by participating in activities, supporting causes, being a good samaritan, donating items to the school or being on the Honour roll/Merit of excellence list. Once a month, during our assembly, scores are announced and students cheer for their HOUSE.
At the end of the school year, the winning HOUSE is announced. The entire HOUSE receives a special prize and a “WINNER” banner that is displayed for years to come!
