Rituals & Traditions

Rituals and traditions at O Castro

Our school calendar includes many celebrations of cultural events, giving shape to the year and giving students regular events to look forward to and help plan. Along with marking cultural festivals we celebrate academic milestones such as end of year and graduation, and hold all-school assemblies.

The house system at O Castro

The house system allows students of all ages to get to know each other outside of the classroom environment, building connections between different age groups. Each year four House Captains are elected, providing an excellent leadership opportunity for the students chosen.

In primary school, students work to earn“house points”which are awarded in class for when students demonstrate skills such as teamwork, thinking creatively and problem solving. 

The four houses at O Castro School are:
