The House System
The Millennium School, Dubai instills team spirit and imparts a healthy sense of competition through the House system. There are four houses namely Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. A House teacher, Captain and Vice-Captain coordinates the activities of each house. House assemblies are conducted regularly to instill the values of teamwork and team spirit. Every student is assigned a house color on enrolment, instilling a sense of belonging and accountability. Every house has a motto they deeply revere and live up to.
It is significant to us that this is filtered across the school through the curriculum and our sports other extracurricular activities in order to ensure that all students have equal opportunities to succeed. Students accumulate house points throughout the year and the winning house at the end of the year is awarded the House Cup.
Our students uphold house allegiance with great reverence, and the competition is fierce and relentless, generating a sense of team spirit that crosses age barriers and class groups. This certainly helps to build a strong sense of collaboration and common purpose and there are many opportunities for every student to engage in supporting their team, in a wide variety of events including creativity challenges, sports, drama, athletics, subject-based quizzes, recycling, chess, debating and public speaking, MUN and other activities.
Through the inter-house activities, we are able to provide opportunities to a large number of students to participate and succeed. Students accumulate house points throughout the year and, at the end of the year, the winning house is awarded the House Cup.
