The King Charles house competition has been re-energised this academic year and this has stirred up much well spirited competition and everyone really wants to do their bit!
The schools communication centre was no exception to this, with centre staff reminiscing about their days at school and how much house competitions meant to them, they felt they had to do something. The Year 11 Life Skills (Asdan) programme was the perfect opportunity for four of our Year 11 students to show off their talents in organising the first house photography competition – Images of a British Autumn. They have worked tirelessly with each other and staff to write key email communications, design rules, create displays, and design a timetable of tutor groups to visit and vote and much more to come.
At the time of writing the entry deadline has passed, the photos are on display and every morning this week up to 50 students are entering our Hillgrove communication centre to cast their vote.
There are some fantastic entries and there is a real buzz as students and staff really struggle to narrow it down to just one favourite choice. It is great to see the competition be so popular and we have decided that this needs to be a termly event!
There were amazing entries…some contained stunning scenery, others displayed some real creativity, some most of required significant patience and others were more abstract!
The communication centre would like to thank all who took part and the support received from all staff and students…the theme for the next competition will be announced in the new year!
