Modbury High School
School Houses were formed to promote competition in academic interests and sporting activities while providing leadership among the students.
Dame Mary Gilmore (Gold - now Yellow) and Henry Lawson (Blue) were chosen as representatives of men and women prominent in Australian Literature from the past.
From the present, Judith Wright (Red) and Colin Thiele (Green) granted the school permission to use their names.
Gilmore House had the distinction of winning the cup in the first year of competitions.
