First of all we would like to start up a team of children representing the whole school to help share ideas and make decisions because whilst we think we have good ideas… we know that the students have the best ideas!
We are looking for 20 energetic and proactive students from year 1-5 to become part of the house team and be officially named ‘House Representatives’. Specifically, we are going to be appointing one student for each house from each year group i.e. 4 from year 1, 4 from year 2 and so on. We are also looking for 8 year 6 students to be officially named ‘House Captains’ i.e. 1 girl and boy to represent each house. As a House Representative or House Captain, students will be able to share their ideas for Fun Fridays, inform the House Leaders what students at St. Andrews really want to do for events, be involved in assemblies and much more. We are encouraging students to apply to be a House Representative or Captain by registering their interest on Wednesday 6th September on the first floor of the R-Block (Ms. Jen’s room), then prepare a speech by Friday 8th September, ready to present to their Key Stage in Fridays assembly. In the speeches, we would like students to think about:
Why they want to be a House Representative?
What they would like to do as a House Representative?
How can they help the House Team?
Why do they think they would be a good House Representative? Plus anything else they would like to add.
The House Leaders will also be available on Wednesday morning break time to help with any speeches and answer any questions students may have, whilst students register their interest.
We look forward to introducing the new House Representatives and Captains in the near future!
