The House System is used to promote a positive school culture, encourage school connectedness, and celebrate student success. House points are awarded for a range of student achievements to promote friendly competition between houses.

House points are also allocated to the houses for a range of school initiatives. Students are placed in a House when they enrol at the school and generally siblings belong to the same House. Points are progressively updated throughout the year and tallies are publicised at each assembly, in the school newsletter, through Facebook and on the school sign.

Historically, Maitland Area School had four house teams:

  • Yorke (Yorke Peninsula)
  • Spencer (Spencer Gulf)
  • Eyre (Eyre Peninsula)
  • Vincent (Gulf St Vincent)

These were later reduced to three houses and on amalgamation to two:

Vincent Sharks
Vincent Sharks
Vincent Sea-Eagles
Vincent Sea-Eagles
