Newmills Primary School, Dungannon

House System

Newmills Primary School operates a House System. Doras, Drumreagh, Farlough and Sessia are townlands surrounding the school and provide our House names. Each House has a specific colour: Doras (red), Drumreagh (green), Farlough (yellow) and Sessia (blue) making it easier for our younger pupils.

Pupils become members of a House when they arrive in Primary 1 and we try to keep brothers and sisters together if possible. Teachers set targets in conjunction with pupils which may be linked to work, behaviour or the learning of new skills. House points are awarded to successful pupils on a daily basis and are recorded in each class. Members of the School Council total the points received each Friday and announce the results during Assembly. The House which gains the most points each half term will receive prizes from the “Treasure Box”.
