The process to become a House Captain is rigorous. First students are required to complete an application that asks them to articulate their own thoughts on what the role of a House Captain should be and how leadership can help develop their house further. Once completed, all applicants are then asked to present to all the Year 6 members of their house why they thought they should be a House Captain and what they would do if they were given the role. From there, the Year 6 teachers in each house select the four students they felt were most suited to be shortlisted for an interview with members of the BIS primary leadership team. Finally each of the four candidates are interviewed individually and must show how articulate they are when under the pressure of a formal interview.
I was so impressed by all the candidates that applied this term; each one was brave and took a risk by stepping outside of their comfort zone. Each interview panel found it extremely difficult to decide which candidates should be given the post of House Captain and in the end the candidates that were best able to discuss their ideas on how to better develop their house team this term were chosen. Well done to all and good luck to the newly appointed Captains. For those that were not selected this time, there will be another opportunity at the start of next term.
Mr Mike, Year 6 Leader
