Tatachilla Lutheran College’s House system is an integral part of College life, and each family at the College is part of the same House. This system enables students to develop critical lifelong skills such as teamwork, leadership, service and community mindedness.
The College is founded on the biblical understanding of Jesus Christ as the rock of our salvation. As such, each House is named after precious gemstones which originate in different conditions and have different qualities: Emerald (green), Ruby (red), Sapphire (blue) and Topaz (yellow). Each House, therefore, has its own distinctive cut and refraction - showcasing it’s collective personality and reminding us that we are all a unique part of God’s creation.
The R.E Bruss Shield is named after the founding principal of Tatachilla Lutheran College, with Houses working together and competing against other Houses for this award. Activities that contribute toward House points cover sporting, academic, service and cultural events.
Through these activities we aim to facilitate a culture of belonging, fun and personal development that combines holistic educational activities across Reception to Year 12.
