Traditions are standards below which a man must never fall. Towards the middle of the 18th Century, Public Schools in England initiated the glorious tradition of Houses. Leading universities like Harvard, Princeton, John Hopkins and Carnegie Mellon follow the tradition of Houses and House Masters.
In the 21st century, we at Primus too follow the revered tradition and have divided our students into Four Houses. Throughout the academic year each house competes in sporting and literary events against the others. Primus cubs are passionate and devoted to the house they belong to and fiercely compete to win accolades for their house.
Aristotle House takes its name after the famous Greek Philospher, Aristotle who was one of the most important founding figures in Western philosophy. With blue as its house colour, Aristotle House follows the Motto of Semper Paratus, meaning Always Ready.
Einstein House, with orange as its customary colour, takes its name after Albert Einstein, the renowned theoretical physicist . The house motto Acta Non Verba, which implies Action not Words, is adapted from the motto of the United States Merchant Marine Academy.

Socrates House honours the Athenian Philospher, Socrates and has the vibrant yellow for its house colour. The house motto, Ubique (meaning Everywhere) has been adapted from the motto of the Royal Engineers and the Royal Artillery, given to them by King William IV in 1832.
