Our House Captains for 2017-18 have now been elected. Candidates from Year 6 prepared some excellent applications and speeches which they presented to their House Teams. All of the children and staff carefully considered their choices and cast their votes.
The roles of House Captain and Vice-Captain are very important to us at Oatlands and include responsibilities such as: welcoming visitors, managing the House Points system, presenting House Honours certificates to peers, organising House competitions and leading their House Teams at our Sports Afternoon.
I am delighted to announce that our 2017-18 House Captains and Vice-Captains are:
Our first House Event of the year – the Oatlands Junior Performance Poetry Slam has been a fantastic success with wonderful, creative performances from every year group. Each of the houses put forward an individual, a paired and a group performance which were then given feedback by our panel of judges – Mrs McNerney, Mrs Coyne, Mrs Grimer and Mrs Gerry. The teams had already gone through an audition and had been enthusiastically coached and encouraged by our hard-working house and vice captains.
We were all thoroughly entertained and impressed by the exceptionally high standards of performance. A huge thank you and well done to all the children who took part.
Joint winners of individual category: Emma Trayford and Josie Robinson
Winners of paired category: Hollie Bassham and Chloe Brett
Winners of group category: Lily McIntosh , Esme McComb and Ruby Oliver
Overall Highest scoring House: Green Kingfishers Mrs Wilkinson
Our House and Vice Captains will be selling Poppies for Remembrance Day, at afternoon registration every day from Monday 30th October.
