I’m House Captain of Stonebow and along with Alissa, I will try to help the school in every way possible.

As House Captains we all hope that we will help students to care learn and thrive together.

Update from Term 1

This term the House Captains have been voted in and have already achieved so much in their new role. They have:

  • Led their own school tours to some of our school governors having been trained up by Mr Durkan. They are now ready to lead their own tours of our school to any visitors that would like one.
  • Introduced themselves to our school community on our website and in our newsletter.
  • Served our hot chocolates to say thank you to this term’s Hot Chocolate Tuesday winners. These are children that have gone above and beyond in all areas throughout the whole term.
  • Sorted and counted this term’s house points and shared the results with our school on the last day of term.
  • Helped lead our inter-house sports morning, which consisted of football, netball, gym and circuit activities.
  • Produced some information about their house to share with visitors to our website.

Next term (amongst many other tasks!) they will be attending some of our Senior Leadership Meetings on Monday evenings to help the leadership team look at books across the school so that we can continue to move forward as a school. They will also be sharing their ideas for house events so that we can then map these events out across the year.
