    Woolley
    The current House System consisting of ten Houses was first
    introduced in 1916 when the school of about 70 students was
    divided into 'A' and 'B' Houses.

    In 1922 formal names: Percival, Raleigh and Austin respectively,
    were given to the first three Houses, 'A', 'B', and 'C' based on a
    system of drawn lots.

    'H' House was named for Sir Charles C. Woolley, Governor
    overseeing and opening the current school building. Woolley was
    one of seven Houses added later in 1954/1955.

    House colours were first introduced into School ties as a mark of
    distinction in 1933.
