At Kilvington, students are organised into four House groups: Barrett (red); Burman (yellow); Fethers (blue) and Fysh (green).
Students enjoy a range of ‘House’ activities, including, inter-House cross-country, athletics and swimming events, fostering sportsmanship, a sense of community and House spirit.
For Years 7–9 and Years 10–12, the system is divided into Tutor Groups with key areas of support: the Tutor; House Dean; Head of Senior School; Counsellor/Chaplain; Year 7, 9 and VCE Coordinators; Learning Support teachers; and, International Student Coordinator.
A greater sense of House identity develops, whereby older students look out for younger ones, underpinning the ‘family concept’ and developing a community culture. Younger students can see what lies ahead in later year levels and be mentored while at the same time making more friends in other year groups.
