Each child when enrolled at KPS is placed in either Blue, Green, Red or Gold House. There is friendly rivalry to be the winning house in our weekly, term and yearly citizenship competition.

At the end of Year 5, students apply for positions as House Captains during Year 6 and are selected following an interview process. It is their responsibility to co-ordinate and encourage their House’s efforts throughout the year.
