WARRINN (House System)

WARRINN (House System)

See Also Warrinn (Building)
See Also Mackie House (Boarding)

Warrinn was used as both a name in the House System and as the name of a boarding house. As a sporting house it was established in 1921. At the time of establishment the boarding houses were the foundation of the house system but these were integrated into a revised house system in 1951 at which time Warrinn ceased to be used as a distinct House for sports. Warrinn House continued as a boarding facility until 1976 although after the construction of the Mossgiel Units it was occasionally referred to as New Warrinn.

From 1952 to 1961, there were no formal House Captains of Warrinn but either House Prefects or Monitors - often only one House Prefect was appointed.
