Houses are at the very core of boarding school life at Ghora Gali. They provide a sense of belonging and identity. Houses promote a healthy, competitive, cooperative and non adversarial environment, spirit, fair play and respect. They build a foundation of team work. The house colours are a culture.
The house system inculcates in a student a sense of competition and loyalty. Each house is headed by a Housemaster who is assisted by a Deputy, House Bearers and two tutors all from the teaching faculty.
Housemasters share responsibility for discipline with the Deputy Headmaster (Boarding & Compliance) and, ultimately, the Headmaster. Clear policies are published on all disciplinary matters, and are enforced firmly but fairly.
There are four houses in the school, illustrated on the right.
