The house system originates in the United Kingdom, and is a traditional feature of schools and colleges in English-speaking countries. The school is divided into groups called 'houses', and each student is permanently allocated to one house at the moment of enrollment. Houses may compete with one another at academic and social activities, sports, and maybe in other ways, thus providing a focus for creativity, cooperation, and group loyalty.
At Cambridge College (Thailand), in October 2016, we established three houses. The names, symbols, mottos and values of each group were researched and determined by the students themselves. Our houses are named after highly revered historic statesmen of Great Britain: Sir Winston Churchill, Harold Macmillan, and Neville Chamberlain.
