Becket House

Becket House 

A prayer to St Thomas Becket 

Great St Thomas, Bishop, Priest and martyr and sacrificial lamb for the faith, pray for us. You who were a fearless shepherd of the people of God, pray for us to have courage in all the circumstances od our lives, to live according to the light that your example gives to our consciences. May we be faithful unto death, as you were. May we always seek God’s Holy will in our lives. Amen. 

At St Columba’s, we have our own very own House system, where you will compete for points every day as part of our whole school competition. When you join St Columba’s, you will be put in one of six different houses, where you will wear your coloured house tie with pride. Regular interhouse competitions and Sports Day will also give you the opportunity to compete for house points. Our houses are named after famous Saints (Becket, Campion, Fisher, Loyola, More, Xavier).

House points are awarded for many aspects of school life, for example:

  • Attendance
  • Punctuality
  • Personal Conduct
  • Attitude to Learning
  • Homework
  • Contribution to the Community
