St David's House System

The House system is an integral part of the wellbeing structure at St David’s Catholic College. Students may choose a House and participate in a variety of activities that promote charity, service, leadership, and collaboration. 
Students gain Faith in Action hours by participating in House Activities, which becomes an essential part of the St David’s Diploma
