A house system operates across the school. They all represent endangered animals found in Malaysia and were chosen by the students.

  • Badak - Bornean rhino (red)
  • Gajah - Borneo pygmy elephant (purple)
  • Harimau - Malayan tiger (orange)
  • Penyu - green turtle (green)

Each house is led by two teacher leaders from Primary and Secondary. All students are assigned a house upon enrolment, with siblings (and their parents) always sharing the same House. Competitions and activities are held throughout the year to win the termly house trophies. Each House has a House Captain (from Year 10) and a Vice House Captain (from Year 6), elected by the students. The Houses each organise an annual House Week, where many events take place, giving students the chance to earn house points and raise money for the school's chosen charities.
