It was the big day this week when we set about electing our House Captains for the year. Quite the big responsibility – these are the individuals in charge of the different houses: Soleburn and Lochnaw. The upper class were over the moon we could put to use all the skills and knowledge we are learning and studying as part of our new class topic on Democracy and how the Government works. What better way to start that forming the government and choosing the leaders of our own school!
House Captains have the challenge ahead of them of planning the big events throughout the year (especially as we can now have some events in schools!) and promoting good behaviour in their houses. All this adds up to Dojos which turn into Merits which turn into prizes for each house – exciting stuff!
Our 5 candidates had good time to prepare and were each ready to deliver a speech, stating their case on why they felt they were the best person for the job to the rest of the school before our secret ballots were cast. All pupils delivered fantastic speeches and really showed how much they care about the school and everyone in it. It proved for a very tough vote for our pupils. We are very proud of all the P7’s for putting their best foot forward and, regardless what the result was, all of them would make excellent House Captain and leaders. But, like any good democracy, you can only have one winner…
So… With a very close vote amongst them all, I am very happy to announce that the House Captains are:
Corsewall – Taylor Smith
Loch Connell – Miley Adams
Congratulations House Captains! I am sure you will do us proud!
