House Captains

A House Captain is elected for each house from each year level. These girls take a leadership role within their House as the students participate in Sports Day, Swimming Carnival and lunchtime House Sports competitions. The points from all House competitions over the year are collated and at the end of each year the winning House is presented with the Collyer Cup.

Mitcham Girls High School has three houses:


Named after Dame Roma Mitchell. The colour red is to represent the legal colour worn by judges.


Named after Dawn Fraser the Olympic swimmer. The colour blue is to represent the water.


Named after Catherine Helen Spence, the author. Yellow represents the colour of much of the paper in the early 1900s.

We congratulate the girls who have so effectively stepped up to the plate and lead their houses.
