Following a hotly contested race, Hutch House was crowned House Champions for the 2021/22 academic year. Pipping Anise House and Bauhinia House to the title by just 20 points with a grand total of 3000, the House Cup will be dressed in black and white for the next twelve months.
Hutch House follows Hook House (2020/21 House Champions) and Bauhinia House (2019/20 House Champions), as first time winners step into the limelight for a third consecutive year.
"During a year marked profoundly by an extended period of suspension, Hutch House should be incredibly proud of all they have achieved. Their determination, resilience and camaraderie have served them well.” Ben Keeling, Principal
Shrewsbury House teams were named after flowering plants indigenous to Hong Kong following consultation with the Student Council. The Hutch species is named after Dendrobenthamia Hongkongensis, a small and rare evergreen tree found in ravine forests with high humidity. Rather prophetically, they bloom in May and June, offering white flowers composed of four elliptic bracts.
Houses act to group students vertically, by association, rather than horizontally, by age. They support broader student connection, provide opportunities to lead, support, cooperate and connect directly to our merit system.
