AMERICAN MONTESSORI PUBLIC SCHOOL
A brief Report on “School Houses”
The division of a School into Houses is done to provide for a positive completion and a closer rapport between the Teachers and Students. It helps the students to undertake responsibility, and develop their administrative and organizing skills besides encouraging leadership. Liaison with their peers, juniors and seniors hones their personality and the sense of belonging and challenges their ability to perform to their utmost. It instills loyalty and encourages a healthy completion amongst all.
American Montessori Public School is following the same ethos and has divided its students into
‘4 Houses’ namely Unity , Fraternity, Peace and Integrity. Students are divided into 4 Houses from Class I onwards and remain in the same House throughout their journey at AMPS. Teachers too are members categorized in the four appointed ‘Houses’ .
House Captains are chosen from Class XII and Vice Captains from Class XI .They face an interview by a Board comprised of Staff Members. Their appointment also depends on their performances during their academic sojourn. Friday of each week is dedicated to House Activities. On this day the Teachers and Students meet and plan for all the upcoming activities as a group. All competitions are conducted House wise, managed by the students administratively under the supervision and guidance of their Teachers.
All activities are conducted under the banners of the Houses and results are collated under them, for all activities which run through the Academic Session .The coveted Best House Trophy is also thus ascertained and awarded at the Sports Day Prize Giving Ceremony .
The different Houses signify their mottos and are duly represented by the colours of their banners.
