There are three Houses in the School: Kites (Yellow), Falcons (Green), and Owls (Red).
On starting at Hawkesdown, each child is allocated a House for their time at School. Each House has a Captain and Deputy-Captain who are elected from the senior years.
House points are awarded for effort, achievement, initiative, kindness and other positive behaviours or successes. They are also won by Houses in various competitions. There is a termly House Cup for the winning House. Staff are also allocated a House, except the Headmistress and the School Secretaries who remain impartial judges of House competitions!
The system encourages the School’s aims and ethos, teamwork, a sense of loyalty and a healthy competitive spirit.
