All Baobab College students are allocated to a house on entering the school. The houses and their respective colours are Eagle (Yellow), Falcon (Green) and Hawk (Blue). House points are awarded to individuals and teams for attendance, merits and for house activities. House points are announced at the end of each term and the winning house is awarded the house cup at the end of the school year.
House activities are compulsory on Monday afternoons for all students from Year 1 upwards. Students also compete for their houses in annual competitions at the Swimming Gala (Term 1 and 2), Cross-Country (Term 2) and Sports Day (Term 3).
