Student Life

Heritage's House System

At Heritage, everyone is part of one of four teams: Balto, Kolyma, Polaris or Togo, each named after a famous husky. Creating smaller groups within such a big school helps increase a sense of belonging and increases participation in school life.

Throughout the year, students and staff compete in friendly competitions: Wacky Wednesdays, Trivia Quizzes, Theme Days and Recycling for example. After every competition, the winning house’s flag is displayed in the main foyer. Points are accumulated each term and the House with the most points at the end of the year merits the House trophy!

Is this the year Balto or Polaris get their name on the House Trophy again? Is this the year Kolyma will finally see yellow on the trophy? Will Togo win 5 in a row?

Good luck everyone. May the best Husky win!
