Revealing the new team!

Our new team of prefects kicked off our assembly after they were officially unveiled, introducing themselves and their plans for Delta House over the coming year. 
Our House Captain Ali S 10TS got us underway by explaining how he wants there to be more inter house competitions beyond the PE department and suggested the launch of an Art competition with a focus on the theme of mental health, perhaps illustrating photography skills. Ali also said that he would like his legacy as Delta House Captain to be fundraising enough money to get proper basketball nets on the MUGA for students to use. 
Finn D 10TS is taking the driving seat on all things Student Voice for Delta. Finn is a passionate advocate of student voice, having been a house rep for several years and is looking forward to chairing the meetings with House reps and taking ideas forward to the Student Council and liaising with SLT to help make positive changes in our school. 
Isaac H 10TS then stepped up to explain how his mission this coming year is to inject a bit more fun into our school! Isaac is determined to organise more teacher v students events beyond basketball so that students can truly get their own back! 
Isabelle P 10TS then explained to the house that her priority for her time in post is to work alongside and help Miss McDonagh relaunch the rewards system. Isabelle will also be working with Ms Gallien to introduce the ‘Rainbow Card’ to students in September. 
We were a key player down in house assembly as the legend that is Muna A 10SH was unable to grace us with her presence as she was busy completing her second week of Work Experience! However, determined not to miss out on making her contribution, Muna sent in her ideas for how she plans to organise regular house fundraisers. 

Delta Dazzler

Our Delta Dazzler in our final house assembly of the year went to none other than Theo B 7RBI, Theo has done the right things consistently, day in day out resulting in him accruing a whopping 260 house points! Theo was given first pick from the amazing prizes.
We did something different in terms of our rewards this time round, listening to student voice and taking on their ideas, the prizes below were up for grabs. Of course, in order to have won any of these prizes, there was one criteria students had to meet. To be entered into the prize draw they had to have fewer than 5 behaviour points. This was a suggestion made by students so that those students who do the right things each and every day are the students who are rewarded. Prizes awarded including fitness trackers, wireless headphones, waterproof speakers and vouchers! There was certainly a sense of excitement amongst the house when the prizes were revealed!


House Heroes

Delta House Heroes and winners of the prizes this assembly were:
• Jan M 10TS
• Elliot J 10TS
• Cecilia S M 8KM
• Abylay A 8KM
• Thomas G 7DS
• Itziar D M 9DD


Thinking Forward

As you can see, Delta House is in for a MEGA year! The new team have already undertaken a considerable number of duties in their initial weeks in post. The prefects enthusiasm has been an utter delight to see this far. With this cracking team at the helm I have no doubt that this forthcoming year is going to be the best year Delta House will have seen. I cannot speak highly enough of the new team of prefects who have set the standards exceptionally high and I am looking forward to collaborating with them to help them achieve their goals to make our house even better. 

Annual Delta Dunk

Finally, a huge thank you to the following staff who took one for the team in the 2nd Delta Dunk at the summer fete to help raise money for our House Charity, Off The Record. The number of staff who were drenched actually tripled upon last year!! Miss Allender, Mrs Arnold, Mr Barber, Mr Cawse, Miss Clement, Mr Emery, Mr Fagan, Ms Gallien, Mrs Grice, Miss Hepworth, Miss Madge, Mr Meakin, Mr Nunn and Mrs Oxenham helped to conclude the fete in fantastic fashion and we are looking forward to the 3rd Delta Dunk already!
Delta House wish you all a brilliant, happy, fun-filled summer and will see you in September!
Miss McDonagh and the (Awesome!!) Delta Team
