The House system helps to promote:
There is no doubt that since being introduced, the House system has been a resounding success in creating culture. Each year the House system brings exciting and colourful events like Tabloids, raft races, wearable arts, pavement art and many other sport and cultural events. These events have quickly become significant fixtures in the school calendar and are eagerly anticipated by those students who revel in their House success and unity. The House lunchtime sports and the events continue to be highly popular amongst Orewa College students, and have become a complimentary part of a diverse student life.
The House groups acknowledge and raise funds for a New Zealand based charity. Throughout the school year sausage sizzles, charity based mufti days and other house initiatives operate to develop awareness to accrue money for a house contribution for our chosen charity. The House charity is:
