Four Day Houses
At Fettes College Guangzhou, in keeping with the spirit of Fettes College Edinburgh, we will have four day houses: BingXin, Tsung-I, Potts and Harrison.
Both pupils and teachers are attached to one of the four houses. So, in addition to their form class, they are part of another family unit. Houses compete with one another at many events throughout the year including sports, music and drama competitions.
Each College's Day House is named after an individual whose values, achievements and character the house draws inspiration. Two are prominent figures in Chinese culture, Jao Tsung-I; Bing Xin, and two are prominent Heads of Fettes College – past and present, Potts and, Harrison. Between them, these figures, and, therefore, the houses, represent a range of values, abilities, and attitudes which we champion at Fettes College Guangzhou. These include kindness, fascination and curiosity, creativity; steadfastness and family.
