House SystemSince the House System was first introduced over eighty years ago it has always encouraged personal responsibility amongst pupils. These smaller school communities engender healthy rivalry in friendly games and other extra-curricular activities, building team skills, leadership skills and co-operation. Pupils join a House when they join the school and belong to their House until they leave. The House System helps build an individual's strengths within a group and creates a bond with other pupils of all ages. As pupils reach their senior years at the School they become increasingly involved in running their Houses and co-coordinating House activities.
APSACS HOUSE SYSTEM
- In the APSACS, House System is being created largely for the purpose of competition. The traditional school sports day will be an inter-house competition. Debating competitions and charity drives or community services will be organized along inter-house lines. Merit points for behavior and academic achievement will also be totaled up for comparison between houses.
- Pupils may be assigned to Houses based on their performance, ability and talent with the aim of forming equilibrium between the Houses in order to increase competition. Traditionally, however, once a pupil has been assigned to a House, any younger siblings he or she has will automatically become members of that House when they arrive at the school. (This tradition sometimes extends to the children of former pupils.)
- One notable feature of the APSACS House system is the nomination and election, or appointment, of House captains for the junior, middle and senior school, whose job it is to rally fellow House-members and to pick individuals for team events with the assistance of House Coordinators (in case of a school with a limited strength one House Captain from the senior section for each House will be elected).
- APSACS School Council:
- House of Unity
- House of Faith
- House of Discipline
- House of Tolerance
- The APSACS insignia to be used on the flags of the Houses.
- Modification: Colour and name of the House to be added to the flag to customize it for the particular House.
Club SocietiesTo facilitate the curriculum program a healthy environment of cooperation and competition is introduced in the educational institutions in the form of societies and clubs. These societies function within defined parameters under the school administration umbrella. To maintain discipline, good system and organization the student population is placed in different houses bearing special names colors and symbols. This is done democratically through a mixed system of nomination, selection and election of person / student bearing offices, responsibilities and status of belonging. In the same manner clubs and societies are formed in the school to enhance the students’ abilities, to uncover the hidden talents and to sharpen the skills.
Difference between Houses and ClubSocieties
- Houses Council is formed on the basis of election where as clubs/societies are formed on the basis of talent and interest.
- There should be equal distribution of talented students between the Houses but they will be unified under the particular Club/Societies, for example: If there are four Qaaris in a School, they should be divided equally among the 4 Houses but they will work together for the Qiraat and Naat Club.
