At Barnburgh Primary School we have four Houses and everyone who comes to our school becomes a member of one of them. Our four Houses are;
EINSTEIN HOUSE: 'You never fail until you stop trying'
HAWKING HOUSE: 'However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.'
TERESA HOUSE: 'Kind words are short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless.'
MANDELA HOUSE: 'The greatest glory in living lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fall.'
We have Captains and Vice Captains for each team who are elected into their role at the start of each year. Our current house captains are:
EINSTEIN HOUSE: Robyn (Captain) Ella (Vice Captain)
HAWKING HOUSE: Harry (Captain) Rosie (Vice Captain)
TERESA HOUSE: Ella (Captain) George (Vice Captain)
MANDELA HOUSE: Imogen (Captain) Hope (Vice Captain)
Every day children at our school work hard to be rewarded with House Points. At the end of every week the House Captains work out how many House Points each team has achieved and the winning House is announced in our Achiever's assembly. We keep a cumulative tally of the House Points and at the end of the year the House with the most House Points will win the trophy.
Any children who fill their House Point log receive a certificate in assembly and have the opportunity to exchange their log for a new book for their class library.
Finally, every week the class teachers do a House Point draw. All our house point tokens get placed together and the teacher draws one token from the pile. The child whose name is on the token enjoys a VIP experience by having dinner at the Top Table with the Headteacher and sitting on a chair next to their teacher during assembly.
Every half term the House Captains and Vice Captains organise a House Event to raise money for a chosen charity.
