Amaqua House

​Pink: It’s not just a colour: it’s an attitude!​

Amaqua House

Amaqua is the house of the Pink Panther:

Unique in character, classy, and smart
Socially conscious, with a giving heart
A sense of humour, turning adversity into success
A ‘never give up’ attitude, determination, and finesse
Deceptively powerful – controlled but strong
Motivated, dedicated, and a life filled with song
We’re associated with Strength, Charity, and Grace: It’s the motto of this family we
love and embrace.


“The Amaqua tree is known as the ‘chosen tree’. Having our house named after the pink flower-blooming tree, it means that each and every individual were meant to be here: we were all destined to blossom into the best versions of ourselves alongside our fellow peers.”

– Nur Haroun

“To me, Amaqua is a house that gives me comfort. In this overwhelming school environment, when all the stress is about is academics, Amaqua, and the people in it, are there to remind me that school is also about fun, friendship, team spirit and being there for each other.”

– Happiness Walter
