Northcross is made up of eight teams or houses of four or five classes. The teams are named after our native trees: Matai, Rimu, Rata, Puriri, Kauri, Kowhai, Totara and Nikau. Each week we have competitions, challenges and expectations where students can earn points towards their houses. Some of the ways students earn points are by showing school spirit, completing mathletics points weekly, keeping their environment tidy, participating in lunchtime sports, handing in notices, respecting their teachers and demonstrating our school learning dispositions of persevering, exploring, being engaged, reflective and self-managing learners.
Congratulations to Totara House for winning the Term 1 competition. Students in Totara house have a free mufti day Thursday 18th May as a prize.
