Favourite House moment recently:
Doing the double!!!! Winning the Day of Sport and the House Cup this year!
How long you have been HoH?
Since the setting of the house system in 2008.
What do you think your house need to do this year to win the House Cup?
For Akabusi as a team to pull together once again and get involved in every event that is set up… from day of sport to the inter house competitions in and out of lessons and in every subject, debating, music concerts, chess. sport and not forgetting the conker competition! We showed that this is the key to success during our day of sport victory this year and I’m sure we will continue our upward climb to success with the same mentality this year….. Oh and the continued collection of all those house points!! Points means prizes!!
Why do you find the house system exciting and why you are proud to be head of your particular house?
Its great to be part of such a huge team. A team of so many different, unique and amazing members. A team that strives to try their best in whatever they take part in, a team that is always willing to try something new and step out of their comfort zone.
I am proud to have beaten Radcliffe to the day of sport cup!! 😉 and Im proud to be part of the house that no matter what never gives up and will put in 100% effort in all circumstances. As Kris our fearless leader says “success comes in cans…. not cannot’s” and as a house we work hard and play hard using this philosophy….. “ALRIIIIGGGGHHT!!”
