House Competition and Student Rewards

House Competition

Students at Comet Bay College are enrolled in one of four Houses – Challenger (yellow), Mariner (blue), Navigator (red) or Voyager (green). Our friendly House competition promotes teamwork, leadership and inclusion, with students encouraged to participate in a range of activities right across the year to contribute to their House tally. It helps students strive for success and builds upon our College’s positive culture.

Each year four Year 12 students are selected to be House Captains. Their role is to foster healthy competition and promote the House system. They assist with the running of lunchtime House Challenges, our annual House Carnivals and House sporting activities, and are encouraged to take an active role in supporting their peers and building an atmosphere of friendly competition during the events.

Students are encouraged to wear their House shirt with pride each Friday, and during House Carnivals and sporting activities. There are two sport-based House Carnivals on our annual College calendar – the Term 1 Swimming Carnival and Term 3 Athletics Carnival – with alternative terms dedicated to non-sporting contests. This enables all students to participate in challenges within their aptitude.

Each term, a House Assembly is held which gives students the opportunity to sit with their House peers. These assemblies provide an opportunity for students to meet and mingle with peers from different year groups to develop a bond within the House team. It is where individual student rewards are presented and House tallies announced. End-of-year celebrations are held in Term 4 for the year’s winning House.

Student Reward Points (PBIS)

Students have an opportunity to earn House Points when displaying positive behaviour, academic excellence, participation in College events or sporting achievement. College staff are particularly keen to reward students who demonstrate the Comet Bay College Super Vowels: A for Attendance, E for Effort, I for following staff Instructions, O for respecting Others and U for wearing the Uniform, further encouraging our Good Standing Policy.

The allocation of House Points rewards both the House and individual student. Comet Bay College uses the PBIS (Positive Behavioural Interventions and Support) Program. Students are encouraged to download the PBIS app to keep track of their House Points. House Points can be spent at The House – our on-campus shop. Students can make purchases at lunchtime when The House is open on a range of items, including sporting gear, school stationery, novelty gifts, electronic devices and vouchers. House Points are valid for the school calendar year, with tallies reset before Term 1 each year – meaning students must spend or lose the points before the end of Term 4.
