Nurtured: Torrens Park Campus House

Nurtured: Torrens Park Campus House

The Scotch College House system is an important framework that takes students from being one in 800 students at the Torrens Park Campus, to one in 130 within a House, then one in 20 within a Mentor. This allows us as Heads of House, and individual Mentors, to build relationships with the students within our House, to compete against the other houses, and have key wellbeing moments with each other.

Nurturing within the House system begins with us creating an environment in which students can take risks as they grow up. Heads of House have opportunities each week to nurture students who are utilising their strengths through awards such as the McGregor Lion of the Week, where this week the House celebrated Cormack O’Reilly’s unbeaten century in cricket on the weekend. Additionally, students are nurtured through personal relationships with their mentors, where they are able to build meaningful connections that will help them to navigate life’s challenges. 

Through building relationships within House and Mentor, through self-reflections, Morrisby Testing, surveys and more, students are able to identify areas of strength that can be nurtured. These can be nurtured in House through leadership opportunities and Saies Shield activities like debating, as well as more broadly across the College. These strengths can be abilities such as sporting or performing arts, subject specific, interest-based or personality-based, and Scotch College has the ability to find a unique opportunity where these strengths can be nurtured. 

One recent example is Aneesa Shaki’s desire to learn more about social entrepreneurship. She came up with the idea of inviting the owners of Taboo into the school for a presentation and personal coaching session. Her desire to create social change was nurtured here by a unique opportunity, and the confidence with which she is approaching her social business continues to grow.
