House HistoryEdit

Paterson House was the last of hte Four houses to win the Hosue Cup, their first success coming in 1986. 

The early 90's saw them gain more success with wins in 1990 and 92. It has since been an on an off success with Paterson. They dominated in the early 2001. But then went into a long period of decline. One low point came in 2005 when struggling with numbers had only 4 students compete in the majority of grade 6 house swimming events. 

More recently Paterson has built itself up into a powerhouse, taking home the House Cup in 2010 and 2012, as well as winning the inagural Zimbachs Shield in 2012.
