House System at JPS
At JPS, we have the right mix of academics and extra-curricular activities to promote the holistic development of children. These have been proven to improve oratory skills, boost self-confidence, and shed stage-fear and other inhibitions.
The students are divided into four Houses, named after breeds of horses. As horses have a great sense of balance, due partly to their ability to feel their footing and partly to highly developed proprioception. They are:
The various sports and other events are conducted among these four Houses to ensure maximum participation from the students, while encouraging healthy competition among the Houses.
Each House is headed by a House Captain who is ably supported by a Vice House Captain. Every House is allotted a teacher as a House Mistress. This promotes bonding and inculcates a healthy team spirit among the teachers and students alike. It also ensures that the children are trained for the various competitions by teachers from different disciplines.
