House Teams
At Tien Shan, there are four different house teams: Abai (red), Zambul (green), Auezov (blue), and Sefulin (yellow). Each new family who enters Tien Shan will be assigned to one of these house teams. Students will receive house points from their teachers when they memorize the given verses for each term and sometimes do outstanding actions. These house points will be added to the total amount of house points each team has. House points can also be earned during an annual event called Sports Day. Sports day is an event when all the students with their family wear their house team colors and compete with each other in running and other fun competitions. The winner of sports day will receive the most amount of house points. The team with the most amount of house points at the end of the year will win first place of the year.
