House Competition

The four Houses are:

  • Bass (formerly Janaralong)
  • Collins (formerly Asatangneen)
  • Flinders (formerly Kananook)
  • Murray (formerly Eumemmering)

The names for each of the houses come from early explorers of Victoria and the Port Phillip region - George Bass, William Collins, Matthew Flinders, and John Murray.

The houses compete in three major competitions: Swimming, Athletics and Cross Country.
