The House Captains lead each of our school houses. The houses are named after apples because the school was built on an apple orchard. The houses are Bramley, Winston, Russet and Empire. Each week the total number of housepoints for each house is counted and a trophy awarded to the winning house. The House Captains also organise inter-house competitions and cake sales.
We believe our job is to:
- discuss important matters and how to lead our Houses to victory
- encourage our Houses to earn lots of house points
- identify and carry out fund raising activities for the school and for chosen charities
- share our own and other pupils’ ideas with Mrs Johnson
- set a good example and be a good role model.
Our aim is to make Freegrounds Junior School an even happier and friendly place to learn. We want to encourage everyone to achieve their best and celebrate everyone’s successes in everything they do.
This week the pupils elected their House Captains for 2017-18. Thank you to everyone who stood for the election. The posters, stickers and election speeches/presentations were brilliant.
Congratulations to the following pupils who were elected:
