Silver Fern > House System

House System

The House System is at the heart of our students’ lives at Silver Fern International School. This concept is valued as a major means to develop inter-school competition, interaction between pairs and leadership.

The inter-house rivalry is a great way to allow our students the opportunity to get involved and utilise their strengths and talents, whether it is academic, sporting or performance.

All primary school students and staff are allocated to a House. These allocations remain the same throughout their time at Silver Fern. Each House is named after a native bird from New Zealand and has an associated colour.

 

Pukeko (Blue)

The elegant Pukeko bird is known for its teamwork. When danger strikes they band together and strike as a collective force. When our Pukeko students demonstrate similar teamwork qualities, they too will strike as a collective force.

 

Kiwi (Green)

The Kiwi bird is an expert at deceiving their predators. Often the Kiwi can form deceptive plans to defeat its enemies. Deceiving opposing houses will enable our Kiwi students to be victorious.

 

Tui (Red)

The Tui bird can be extremely aggressive. When in battle Tui birds never back down. This is a great trait for our Tui students to display.

 

Moa (Yellow)

The Moa bird is known worldwide for its physical dominance. This physical dominance enabled this New Zealand bird to become a world beater. Let’s hope this can be the same for our Moa students.
