It’s back and it’s bigger than ever! The success of the school’s House System which was launched last year has led to a change in school uniform. The colours of each house have been incorporated into the school ties and pupils are wearing them with great pride.
The system is changing slightly this year. Each pupil is automatically given two points per day if they are in and arrive on time. Mrs Robinson then calculates each forms house points on a weekly basis and the information is available for all to see in the house noticeboard located on the green corridor downstairs.
At the end of each term the house with the best attendance and punctuality will have an afternoon off timetable doing something exciting like bowling or visiting the cinema.
In addition to this, each house is being given a half term in which they raise money for their chosen charities. Each house is to come up with their own ideas and carry them out during school time… then as a reward for their hard work they will spend an afternoon in the hall watching a film and being treated to snacks.
For further details speak to you form captains or heads of house.
