Development of Our Unique 'House' Teams

In 2020, the students, staff and community began to collaboratively plan our unique Prahran High School House structure for the future. This work began with a competition.

As we continue the development and growth of our school, we launched a community competition to plan the purpose, theme, colours and names of a system of ‘house’ teams which will become a feature of school life at Prahran High School. The concept of school ‘houses’ dates back centuries and while we may not end up using this traditional language of ‘houses’, it is our starting point.

Together, we see leadership, design, team-building and healthy competition as part of this process. Importantly we also see connection, engagement and pride. We don’t seek to mimic the traditions of older schools – we seek to create our own and they must be right for us. The Student Leadership Action Team is enthusiastic about this and will have a role in leading this forward.

The concept for the Houses was confirmed through the competition. We will be using our school brand colours for the Houses: Lime green, Teal, Royal Blue and Orange.

The Houses will be named after prominent Australians who have ‘made an impact’. We are currently working to confirm acceptance of the offer of a House name for PHS with two further of the suggested people.
