There are six Houses at Lake Joondalup Baptist College and each has its own identity, bible verse and colour. The Houses are named after ships which ran aground on the west coast of Australia. Students enter the House system on enrolment and remain in the same House for the remainder of their school years.
The Head of House gets to know each student and the family allocated to the House, ensuring a high standard of pastoral care. Each student is placed in a Connect group within their House and year group, and the groups meet daily.
