House Captain Voting


During the week commencing 2nd December, children in years 4, 5 and 6 voted for who they felt should represent their house as a House Captain. It was very close in each house and the winners were announced in Celebration Assembly on Friday 6th December. Pictures soon to follow!


Well done to everyone who put themselves forward for this role. As the year progresses, those children elected as House Captains will play an important role in the running of house events, planning and delivering activities to different year groups, and organising their houses.

We look forward to an excellent competition this year!
