The House System at Vidya Bharati is an integral and vibrant part of the school’s culture. It provides opportunities for students to develop all aspects of their growth and learning in terms of personality, morality, creativity, knowledge and skills. The system promotes values of fair play, teamwork, citizenship, mutual responsibility, self-discipline, initiative, perseverance and resilience. Since each house includes students from every grade, it fosters a sense of community throughout the school too. The school is divided up into four vertical groups having their own identity with their own name, colour and succinct statement:
Pioneers (Yellow): The house motivates the learners to be or try to be the first to explore, develop, apply or use a new method, area of knowledge, or activity.
Challengers (Orange) : The house encourages the students to not only accept life challenges as opportunities but to be a challenger themselves with a winning spirit.
Explorers (Blue) : The house stimulates the young minds to search for new or unfamiliar out of known or unknown places or ideas or concepts that may bring about revolution.
Innovators (Green): The house inspires students to introduce changes and develop and design new ideas and products for global welfare.
Pupils are assigned to one of the four houses on entrance to the school where they remain until the end their academic journey in the school. Each member of staff is also attached to a house. Each house is led by a House Captain who acts as representative for all the students in his/her house throughout the year by helping in the co-ordination of house teams, organising activities and events and representing his/her house at relevant meetings. While the House System provides a superb platform for the positive competitions, the houses are primarily a means of fun and excitement whereby the potential of each individual can be capitalised upon. Participation in House activities contributes to excellence in academic, social, sporting and cultural fields. The resultant opportunities for leadership boost an awareness of individual and collective responsibility and a sense of achievement both inside and outside of the classroom. Each term the winning House receives the House shield and other prizes.
