Sports Houses' Event Management System 
Starting from 2010 onwards, SMSJ has turned over to a new, unique approach in globalising and implementing leadership values in its students; each sports house will be given an annual assignment which is to organise one of the four main events of the school. This assignment is specifically given to the Form Four students of that particular year and it involves direct planning of the event, committee distribution and partnerships, cost estimation and creative idealisation.
The main programme of a particular event is its grand closing ceremony which is usually held at the big hall (Dewan Sri Karyawan). The hall will usually be decorated with an extremely significant bias to the sports house colour. As an example, a red-hosted event will render the hall with a vast variation of red ornaments and decorations. The sports house is free to organise any competition, programmes or even make merchandises for the sports house's members to wear; anything that suits the event's theme.
- Buana (Green) was given the task to host the school's Hari Terbuka Asrama (Hostel's Open Day).
- Segara (Blue) was given the task to host the annual Hari Guru (Teacher's Day).
- Suria (Yellow) was given the task to host the Hari Kokurikulum (Co-Curricular Day).
- Purnama (Red) was given the tast to host the Malam Lebaran 1 Malaysia (1 Malaysia Eid Night).
In that year, the Purnama house was named the best house in event management for hosting the Malam Lebaran 1 Malaysia. The unique event was hosted in conjunction with the month of Syawal (Eid) and Malaysia's National Day. Therefore, the event saw a Hari Raya (Eid) feast at the big hall while being entertained with performances signifying the culture of Malaysia. Later, the guests moved on to the school field to watch patriotic dramas and witness the formation of the 1 Malaysia logo by the junior students who on that day hold candles to form the logo. The event was closed with an array of vibrant and extravagant firework shows with the accompaniment of the "1 Malaysia" song.
- Purnama (Red) was given the tast to host the Festival Asrama (Hostel Festival).
