Inter-House competition is fierce & fun!
The inter-House programme was developed in its present form at Scots with a two-fold purpose in mind.
First and foremost it is a competition that allows a student to represent his House in a wide range of activities in an attempt to win the Caradus Shield, the symbol of inter-House supremacy.
Secondly it allows a student to participate in activities in which he may not normally take part, and to encourage a student to ‘have a go’.
The number of activities has grown over the years, competition being spread over the four terms. Activities are either for the full House, for the Senior (Yrs 11 – 13) or Junior (Yrs 9 & 10).
The Years 7 & 8 of the Middle School participate in the full House activities and in their own separate competition.
Points are awarded for each activity, the ‘big four’ of athletics, cross country, music and swimming counting as double points to recognise the mass participation of those activities.
Points are then aggregated for 9a) the Caradus Shield (for overall supremacy) and (b) the Junior Shield (for Years 7 – 10).
