Dargaville High School Houses interhouse competitions

School Houses

At Dargaville High School we have numerous activities as interhouse competitions. Activities range from sporting and cultural to speech and Maths competitions. Students are allocated houses as soon as they enrol at the school encouraging team collegiality and a sense of belonging. The Houses have become very competitive over the last few years with a variety of codes in academic and cultural being added to the “sport” flavour of yesteryears. The House system and naming was setup at the beginning of Dargaville High School (1920's), obviously the founder from British roots. Dargaville High School has four houses:

St Andrews (Blue) Patron Saint of Scotland
St Davids (Yellow) Patron Saint of Wales
St George (Red) Patron Saint of England
St Patricks (Green) Patron Saint of Ireland
