Fisher House

Fisher House 

A prayer of St John Fisher 

Lord, help us to do what is right, to put our hearts and minds in to everything and be an example to others. Help us not to criticise others for things we cannot do ourselves, to understand and forgive others especially when they hurt us, even though it may be hard. May we be thankful for what we have got and remember those who have little. Help us to always try hard in our work and follow the example of St John Fisher. 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
