Raise the Roof!
Raise the Roof is the name we have given to our Inter House Competition. The five houses – Aardman, Bourne, Glennie, Hepworth and Littlewood – compete each term to be the top house.
Points are awarded or deducted in five different categories: points are added for good attendance, effort rainbow scores, and progression line targets, and deducted for BUS detentions and on-calls.
The competition has been fierce with all five Senior Tutors urging their houses on to greater efforts. And now the students know just what the prize for the winning house is: on the day before the last day of the summer term – just before we break up for the summer holidays – all the students in the winning house will be off timetable and taking part in a whole day’s ‘It’s A Knockout’ contest. We have booked a company who will put the whole thing on for us and we are hoping to have suitable refreshments on hand for the students as well.
It promises to be a day to remember for the winning house and a fitting reward for their efforts over the year.
The standings are at present:
- Littlewood - 1129
- Bourne - 1102
- Glennie - 1078
- Aardman - 915
- Hepworth- 903
With one hundred points at stake in each of the five categories, there is still much to play for and it really could be anybody’s prize. We hope all the students will put in that extra last bit of effort to secure the victory for their house.
