Marula House

Yellow – the colour of energy, togetherness and joy

Marula House

Marula is a house built on the fundamentals of unity, courage, and team spirit. It is the home to many talented individuals with abilities which allows us to thrive as a team. Our house has a bond that strengthens everyday and our sisters are always there to help guide us, support us and to teach us to be strong.

When challenged, Marulans are fierce and powerful, and others concede that we’re a force to be reckoned with. Our mascot, the mighty giraffe, symbolizes the balance of the head and the heart. It serves as our good omen to bring luck and greatness to this wondrous house. Although elegant and majestic, the giraffe is equally as playful, which shows that Marula is a house that although strong, confident, and uniform, we know how to have a good time and bring the fun and spirit.

“To me Marula feels like home. I really appreciate that all the girls in our house are always super eager to succeed in house challenges and that we always have the best energy and support during games and events. I love that everyone is always so approachable and friendly which makes our house, Marula, such a fun and comfortable space to be a part of. This makes us the perfect team and family.”

– Raeesa Zalgaonkir

“Marula House is represented by the colour yellow – the colour of happiness, positivity and energy. When I think of this house, I think of buzzing bees; working hard and keeping busy. We always try our best, and we are sure to cheer each other on as we do so. When we fail, we are not afraid to look at our mistakes, learn from them, and try even harder next time.”
