House Competition


In Irish Society’s Primary School we have four Houses: Welch, Newton, Rose and Greenaway.  These houses are named after former Governors of the Irish Society in London.  Sir Alfred Newton in 1913, Sir Percy Greenaway in 1932, Sir William Rose in 1862 and Sir Cullum Welch in 1956. 

We use our Houses for many sporting events throughout the year such as swimming galas, netball tournaments, football matches and sports’ day.
