Sports houses

The house system is designed to reflect and enhance the values of Merrimac State High School. With staff members and students participating enthusiastically in the various house challenges, the school’s values are given concrete meaning as all house members prepare for the future, respect community, value differences, participate and succeed while striving for pride in excellence.
 
The house system aims to give students an identity and sense of pride in a supportive, secure environment. The houses provide for positive competition and a closer rapport between students and teachers. Each house boasts their distinctive colour and mascot.
The house system is an integral and vibrant part of the school culture. Houses compete in a number of sporting, academic and cultural activities. Each term the houses accumulate points for the various activities they participate in and the winning house receives the house shield at the annual sports award ceremony.
 
The four Houses at Merrimac State High School are Stephens, Barrow, Albert and White so named after the pioneering families of the area.
 
Each House has a staff member as a house leader and two students as house captains.
