House Captains at St Mark’s
Every child at St Mark’s is part of a school House Team.
We often use the house teams when grouping children for different activities and for sporting competitions. The children have coloured house t-shirts that are worn for PE lessons so that they can be identified and easily grouped in lessons as well as other events such as partnership sports and sports days. Our supplier for school uniform, Universal Uniform, currently stock PE t-shirts in the four house team colours: Red, Green, Blue and Yellow
The role of House and Vice House Captains are ones of privilege, pride and responsibility. They are more than just a title and badge and require dedication and commitment for an entire year.
The children take part in active citizenship, whereby they lead a series of charitable events throughout the school. This may include major national events e.g Children in Need to more local events e.g food collection for the Cheltenham foodbank.
At the beginning of each year the House and Vice Captains are elected by the Headteacher and the Year 6 Teaching Team submitting a letter about what they can offer their House. There is a boy and girl House Captain and a boy and girl Vice Captain selected for each House.
Each Captain will be different and will contribute an assortment of skills and ideas to the job.
