House names decided in dramatic fashion

After a couple of years being nameless our House teams were finally named this afternoon following a school-wide vote.

The children decided last week that they wanted a beach theme and this week the House Captains visited every class and collected votes for each team’s favourite beach name.

With eleven beaches to choose from the votes were rather spread out but the Red and Green teams had clear first choices and are now named Marazion (Reds) and Swanpool (Blues). Complications were to come, however, when the House Captains of the Yellow and Blue teams announced that both teams had 31 votes for Zennor – a tie! With the help of some scraps of paper and a couple of our Foundation Stage pupils a decision was made and the Yellow team became Zennor, leaving the Blue team to take on their second choice of Fistral.

With our Houses now named we are now able to order our new school PE tops, which are being purchased courtesy of funds raised through FOBSA events. With some luck we will have the new t-shirts in time for this year’s sports days.

Well done to our House Captains for successfully organising the naming process. We look forward to finding out about their next project.
