In September 2013, we introduced House teams to John Blandy! As our school was orginally built to teach boys Navigation skills, we researched and chose 4 famous explorers to name our House teams after! Our houses are named after:
Sir Francis Drake- Explorer of the World
Sir Edmund Hillary- Explorer of Mountains
Sylvia Earle- Explorer of Oceans
Neil Armstrong- Explorer of Space
Children from all classes are grouped into the four houses, and work together as a team to collect housepoints. Each week, the House Captains total up all the housepoints and the House Cup it awarded to the winning House in our Friday Celebration Assembly!
I wonder which House will be the overall winner this year?
