NPS House System

At Newport Primary School, we have a “House” system. This grouping process builds unity and promotes a sense of belonging, and if you’ve ever read or seen (or heard about) the Harry Potter series, you’re probably already familiar with it!

Each [K-2nd] student and staff member is randomly assigned to one of six houses. Throughout the school year, students participate in activities and friendly competitions to engage with their house members and build relationships outside of their classroom community! A student’s house never changes.
