School House Captains
- The Carnation (Red House)
- The Iris (Green House)
- The Daffodil (Blue House)
- The Orchid (Yellow House)
To inspire a healthy sense of competition, students of St. Joseph’s Academy have been allocated one of the four houses which symbolize the school’s values. Students develop a sense of belonging and a feeling of unity in being a part of a specific house.
The four houses are named DAFFODIL – Blue House, IRIS – Green House, CARNATION – Red House and Orchid – Yellow House, after South Indian Dynasties which upheld values of courage, love, velour and intellect.
Each house is led by the House Mistress for a year. The Captain and Vice-captain guide their teams on all fronts and play a vital role in leading their team to victory in all events. Participating in various inter-house competitions not only gives the students a chance to display their talent but also helps them learn valuable lessons on team work and selfless service. Be it a debate, quiz or sports event, students give their best to win laurels and house points. Participation in various activities brings the house honour and gives the students a sense of pride.
