The House System
At DBS, all students, staff and parents belong to one of four Houses; Balmoral (Yellow), Buckingham (Blue), Sandringham (Green) and Windsor (Red). The House names reflect the heritage of the British Royal family.
Students at DBS participate in numerous sporting, musical, academic and team-building House events. Students obtain House Points for commitment to all areas of school life. House Points gained go towards the ultimate accolade of winning the House Point Shield.
The House System is a traditional feature of many schools, which originated in the UK, fostering camaraderie, collaboration, and leadership. House systems are used to promote a healthy competitive spirit amongst students, staff and parents. It makes every student feel an integral part of the school, with each student contributing to the House ethos. The House system is an excellent method to bring out hidden talent in students and give them an opportunity to try new things. The feeling of being a part of a House involves great pride and honour that remains with students their entire life.
Each House has a House Leader, House Vice Leaders, student House Captain and Vice House Captain.
