There is nothing the children at Whiting's Hill like more, than finding out each week, which house is winning the most house points. All of the children in our school are split in to four houses, based on local street names: Chesterfield, Nupton,Trinder and Quinta.
At the start of each school year, a year 6 house Captain is elected by each house, with a couple of vice captains to help them. These captains are there to encourage the rest of their team, they go up in assembly each Monday, to see if they have won the weekly house point race, and are there to congratulate the children with the most points.
The House Captains also help the staff leading each house to organise an annual charity fundraiser, and if the team win a reward for most points in a half term, to select and organise a reward for their members.
