Secondary House Groups

18 Feb 2019

Secondary Houses

Last Wednesday was an exciting day at Nimbin Central as we had our very first Secondary House Group meetings!! Uncle Gilbert and members of the SRC sat down last week and came up with the four Bundjalung names of our houses;

·         Gurumen (Kangaroo) – RED

·         Miwan (Eagle) – Yellow

·         Yumbah (Snake) – Green

·         Jullum (Fish) - Blue

The Houses are a great way for students from different year levels to get to each other and to widen students’ circles of support. In addition to our swimming carnival and athletics carnival, we will be arranging activities throughout the year that foster positive relationships within the groups.

For this reason, we would urge you to encourage your child to attend the Swimming Carnival on Thursday 21st February and wear the colours of their house. Each person will get 5 points for their house simply by turning up, 10 points if they wear the colours. The house with the most points at the end of the year will get a special celebration. There will also be other ways of earning points for your house throughout the year – positive attitude, hard work and citizenship being some of them.

Congratulations to the House Captains who were elected by their house group –

Gurumen – Ella-Rose Carthew-Wood and Jaiden Bell

Miwan – Cooper Jobson and Alex Hodges

Yumbah – Kai Prikulis and Khatia Kovac

Jullum – Kinahn Tunstall and Jovian Ubukata

A big thank you to Uncle Gilbert for guiding us and for offering to come in again to paint banners for each house.
