House System

S.M. Public Academy Campus – 5’s vibrant House System includes all students from Pre-Nursery to Grade 10, encouraging participation in sports and extra-curricular activities, promoting fair play, school spirit, positive rivalry and leadership development. Our House System comprises of four houses which foster strong bonds with fellow students, and provide a healthy competitiveness through inter-house activities, house events and fund raising events. Each house is named after a bird. When the initial letters of houses are written together, they form the abbreviation of S.M. Public Academy i-e. S.M.P.A. Each house owns its discrete characteristic and its very own slogan.
