Stewart House had their own assembly this morning. As well as discussing how the best teams function, the House voted in their new House Captains. The children who put themselves forward for the role provided excellent speeches, one of which included the line ‘I can be your voice’. All participants also effectively balanced humour with the seriousness of the responsibility. To quote one of the winners:
‘With me as your captain, I will make sure that the other houses know who is boss!’
The School Council conducted themselves in a very professional manner whilst visiting Town Hall and the Mayor. The children asked interesting questions and showed a great deal of interest in the role of the Mayor.
Congratulations to our newly elected House Captains for each of the four houses at QPA (Hanover, Stewart, Tudor and Windsor). These pupils were elected by their peers into their new roles and will lead their houses during future events and competitions.
We have now made sure that everyone knows who the school councillors are from every class! Democracy in action!
Congratulations to our new Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl who have been selected after their interviews. Well done to all of the pupils who wrote letters to apply for the positions – it was such a difficult choice to select who would take on these roles.
Our house assemblies will begin next week in order to elect new house captains for each house, as well as deputy house captains. Any pupil wishing to stand will present a short speech prior to the democratic voting process. Additionally, every class this week will be electing their school council representative, with individual votes being held.
We are pleased to announce that ‘The Great Toy Swap’ raised £484 towards charities supporting those affected by the recent terrorism attacks in the United Kingdom. The idea to raise money came from a Year 6 pupil, with all pupils voting from a selection of ideas in the QPA elections.
