Houses

In 2013, the College introduced four new sporting houses to replace the previous two (Cunningham and Oxley). The four houses were named after Christians who have shown great commitment to God as they have pursued a certain area of service to God and their fellow man, in keeping with the College’s motto “Pro Ductibus Pro Patriae” which means “for leadership and for country”.

In Mark Chapter 12, we read an account of Jesus being asked to identify which of the commandments is the most important. Jesus’s reply: “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

The four houses have been named after Christians who actively lived out loving their neighbours as themselves and who each exemplified loving the Lord with all of their heart, soul, mind and strength.
