Carrum Downs Secondary College

Where Every Student Grows

House Structure

Carrum Downs Secondary College runs a four house support structure for students and teachers. Each house is supported by the House Leader, two Assistant House Leaders and a House Support Officer. Houses are vertical (Years 7 to 12) and students remain in the same house for the duration of their secondary schooling. Our house structure builds connectedness within the College between students, teachers and parents.


At Carrum Downs Secondary College, we also celebrate our ‘House Spirit’ throughout the year as we play to win points for our house to win the annual inaugural ‘House Cup’.
