Established in the College in 1993, the House system is intended to facilitate and support quality pastoral care of all the boys. Ideally, every boy will be well known, involved, often encouraged and well advised. Upon enrolment, in the secondary school, each boy is placed in one of eight Houses. As a general rule, he will remain in that House throughout his time at Marist College Ashgrove.
Each student will be in a group of boys, drawn from each of the Years 7-12. The staff appointed to the House normally remains with that House. Heads of House and Pastoral Group Teachers are very important contacts for parents. Ideally, as students progress through the College, a partnership should develop between Pastoral Group Teachers, parents and House staff.
