HOUSE System

In order to promote positive behaviour, leadership and contributions to the school community, the HOUSE programme was established by Ms Emma Carey in September 2019. It acknowledges and awards the wonderful students who make a positive difference to school life here in St Finian’s College. HOUSE is run among our 1st to 3rd Years, with each student allocated to one of four HOUSES, all named after our local lakes (Derravaragh, Ennell, Owel and Sheever), in which they can earn tokens throughout the year. These tokens are converted to points. The HOUSE that has accumulated the most points by May, is richly rewarded by the school with a fun day out… on the house! HOUSE is managed by eight HOUSE  Captains, two per HOUSE, who meet their ‘HOUSE mates’ at different times in the year, and encourage their efforts via Google Classroom. 

Tokens can be awarded by teachers for a huge variety of reasons such as an improved effort in class, helping out fellow classmates, developing their skills on school teams, etc. Students can also earn extra tokens, by working on special challenges that are set each month by the HOUSE Officer, Ms Sinéad Garvin

This programme allows students to interact with other year groups, develop their sense of belonging and encourages them to take responsibility within their school community. Students always enjoy the competitive element to HOUSE, especially at the end of the year when the points race is generally very close! 

Our House Captains for Academic Year 2022-2023 are:

Sheever: Mr Dan Connell & Ms Clare Keighran

Ennell: Ms Louise Dunne & Ms Áine Fahy

Derravaragh: Ms Tracey Fleming & Mr Pat Murray

Owel: Ms Áine Kirby & Mr Billy Higgins
