House
Program

Camberwell girls are divided into four Houses.

Run for the girls, entirely by the girls, the House Program builds spirit and maintains tradition. Being part of a House ensures that girls are connected across year levels.

A variety of student organised and led annual House competitions are held including:

Athletics / Cross Country / Dance / Debating / Drama / Music / Swimming

Participation and teamwork are a focus of all House activities.

By accumulating a required amount of points, students can be awarded House Colours in recognition of their participation. House points are also valuable to the House as a whole, with the Rhodes Cup being awarded to the House with the most combined points.

There is something for everyone and many hidden talents are discovered along the way.
