Our house founder is Pedro Arrupe. He inspires me because of his positive spirit. His positivity could fill an entire room. He always looked on the bright side of things and found ways to help people and to be compassionate. That is why the Arrupe house has compassion as our house trait. I hope people know that the Arrupe house is always determined and compassionate, ready to help whenever we are needed. Compassion is our trait and the students all around the school show that by caring for others. Our house day is February 5th and I can’t wait to see how everyone celebrates. As a school we will practice being compassionate and we will connect with Pedro Arrupe’s legacy in a special way.
My favorite thing about the house system is that we are all one family. Even though everyone is sorted into 6 different houses, at the end of the day we are all one. We cheer for each other, celebrate all of the other houses, and we should all try to embody each of the house traits: Compassion, Perseverance, Gratitude, Humility, Justice and Courage.
