House System

We aim to strengthen the learning experience at CHS through building a sense of belonging and connectedness with the school and our community. Our intention is simple - to create a smaller school feel through a vibrant house system that enables stronger relationships to build across the school.

The six houses are based on stories that go back 26 generations in Cambridge and are found nowhere else in the world. We are incredibly grateful to the mana whenua of our area, Ngaati Korokii Kahukura and Ngaati Hauaa, for sharing this legacy with us.

Our connection to these stories will always connect us to Cambridge, New Zealand, no matter where life takes us next.
