House System

Our House System

We have four houses at Trinity: Craighall, Royston, Melville and Argyll. All staff and pupils are assigned a House when they arrive at Trinity.

Each house has two House Captains who are elected each year by their house.

Our School Captains 2017-2018

Congratulations to the following P7 pupils who were elected House Captains by the pupils.

Argyll : Chloe Hofstra, Angus Powell

Craighall : Brooke Harrison, Joe Harper

Melville :  Matilda Brims, Josh Capon

Royston:  Abi Lytle, Struan Murdoch

Some of our house captains many responsibilities are to count house points, organise house events, give new ideas to houses, make displays, announce points. House points are awarded for good work, effort, behaviour and teamwork. The winning house is presented with a shield at the end of the year and has a celebratory special event.

During the term, we have regular “House Events” from art extravaganzas to treasure hunts. Pupils work together in mixed age groups and siblings are always in the same house.

We have regular ‘Trinity Together’ learning where pupils are in house teams from P1-P7 and learn about Eco Schools, Rights Respecting Schools, Health and Wellbeing and Global Citizenship.

At our yearly Sports Day we work in House teams to win extra points for our house. At the end of sports day, we have a race where we play against the clock rather than aiming to come 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
