Kirsten House Mascot

Kirsten - we are the house that care and inspire Kirstenites, in all we say, think and do.

Our colour may be black, but we aim to shine! We are a house of strength - the gentle kind that our mascot, Kung Fu Panda, exhibits. The kind of strength that helps lift the weight off each other’s shoulders. The kind of strength that allows us to work together in order for our house and each individual to grow. We are a family. A family that sings out loud when we’re getting things done, the family that strives to bring positivity and happiness to the lives of its members. We are Kirsten House, we are special, each of us is different, but together, we are strong.

We embrace Kung Fu Panda’s maxim: “Your real strength comes from being the BEST YOU you can be.”

Kirsten is my family at school. Everyone is always so friendly and helpful, and we work well together. I love how excited we get when we do well as a house, or when girls do well individually.
