The house captains pledge, below, what they would like to achieve, encourage and put in place whilst being a part of the Pegasus House. Jessica Houlton and Louie Barker cover different aspects of what they will bring to the Pegasus House as house captains below.
"As a House Captain for Pegasus I would like to achieve, by the end of the year, the development of a unified House, showing leadership throughout with a commitment to raising money for our chosen charity. I would like to look back on the year and be proud of how much we have raised through different events. I hope to achieve a voice for everyone all through the year making sure everyone has enjoyed being a part of the House."
"When applying for House Captain, I had many plans and ideas that I wanted to achieve. First of all, I think that as a House, we along with the other Houses should have more House days where we take part in competitions. This would encourage the House members to participate and contribute to the House’s glory. Also, linking in with this idea, there should be year group days. This would help older and younger students to participate in activities that are age appropriate."
"Another idea I have is to make it easier for members to gain the House badge and make more opportunities to get it; for example:
Form Competitions would not only get a student to compete for a badge but also compete for their form."
A final idea which I have is to do more fundraising. Each year Pegasus could have the chance to have their go in helping to raise funds for school trips or charity. This could launch a new idea, HOUSE TRIPS. These are just some of my ideas and I hope you like them.
Our chosen charity was selected by a group of students who presented their ideas to the House. Overwhelmingly House Pegasus voted for the charity ‘Enthusiasm for young people’. This charity works with vulnerable young adults, delivering projects with young adults who are at most at risk of offending and social exclusion.
