Here, at Meridian Primary, we have four Houses, each of which are named after a Space Rocket, they are:
Explorer – Yellow
Challenger – Red
Voyager – Blue
Discovery - Green
Each House has two year six House Captains; these House Captains are sometimes, but not always a boy and a girl.
House Captains are selected by writing letters to the Headteacher, Mrs Etchie. The lucky people who are chosen, then have to lead Assemblies, lead Sports Day and inspire their House.
The Houses compete weekly to get the most Raffle Tickets in KS2 and the most Rocket Fuel in KS1. You can get Raffle Tickets and Rocket Fuel for working hard or good behaviour.
I would recommend applying for the job and my best tip for the new House Captains is to remain confident.
