Our House Captain Istahil began the first House Assembly of the year by welcoming our returning Delta students and by extending a particularly warm welcome to students in 7DS and 7RBI as they attended their first Delta House assembly. Istahil outlined who the prefects are for 2018-19 (Harry Roberts, Siobhan Burton and Falah Abdullah) and went on to share what our House Priorities are for the forthcoming year, which are outlined below. 

In Delta House everyone will:

  • Demonstrate our house values consistently (be kind, be diligent and be your best)
  • Have an opportunity to make a contribution towards revamping our whole school rewards system
  • Play their part in fundraising for our house charity

Delta House Reps 2018-19:

Congratulations to our newly appointed Year 7 House Reps, Samira Marsal and Barney Davies in 7DS and Theo Bradwell and Nadra Jama in 7RBI. They will join the following students in being the voice of Delta students for this year. 

Year 8: Abdi Fodey, Sumaya Sharif, Jess Lucas and Emma Chandler
Year 9: Wilf Davies, Brianna Petgrave, Jaheim Atkins and Amina Birdi
Year 10: Walter Penny, Muna Abdi, Finn Davies and Kashygha Wray
Year 11: Archie Rose, Emile Eden Beaver, Harry Roberts and Istahil Abdi

The work that begun in term 6 around our whole school rewards system has been continued in our initial house meetings, with students devising a Google Form that will be shared with and completed by all students so that every student across the school has an opportunity for their voice to be heard.  

Latest House Event: The Delta Dunk!

On Thursday 25 October, the following members of staff have agreed to take part in the halloween themed 'Delta Dunk' challenge! All in aid of our house charity, Off The Record. However, before these lovely people get dunked, there is some serious fundraising to do! Delta House Reps will be leading the way in trying to raise as much money as we can so we can dunk as many members of staff as we can!  Miss Allender, Mr Morton, Mrs Goddard Jones, Mr Cawse, Mr Slane, Miss McDonagh, Mr Lawrence and Mr Emery have all agreed to be dunked and we're fairly certain that there will be some other 'big names' being announced shortly.

Delta Dazzler for September 2018:

This student has made a magnificent start to his time here at Cotham, already being known for demonstrating the Delta House values and securing a whopping 46 house points! Louie Chittenden you have made the Delta House squad incredibly proud of you! Well done and keep up the truly awesome effort. 

We are looking forward to the upcoming year and with the fantastic team of prefects, Delta House are determined to make a positive difference to our school community.

Istahil, Harry, Siobhan, Falah and Miss McDonagh

    Social Media Project

    The creative social media project got underway last Friday lunchtime. It was fantastic to see so many students keen to participate in the project beginning to explore relationships with social media. Due to the high numbers of Co-Researchers, students have put themselves into groups so that they can get the most from the project. Students will be notified of when their sessions are taking place during Friday lunchtimes. 

    Delta Dazzler

    This month the Delta House Dazzler award goes to a student who consistently leads by example each and every day. He is polite, friendly and demonstrates the Delta House values of kindness, being hardworking and being the best version of himself. I am immensely proud to have this student in Delta,  Josh Smith (9AWS) you are the Delta House Dazzler for January 2018. Congratulations!

    Delta House Reps

    On Wednesday 24th January the House Reps had a meeting to feedback what tutor groups had said about how we can go about improving the behaviour and rewards system. The House Reps did a terrific job in feeding back their fellow tutees views and what was pleasing was the suggestions that were put forward that could make a positive difference to the whole school. Students were articulate and made some great suggestions that will be taken to the School Council.  

    Tutor Tube Challenge

    Well done to the mighty and generous 7PPR for being the first tutor group to fill up their tube and return it. They, along with 10CCY enjoyed some sweet treats to say thank you for donating their spare change towards Off The Record. A huge well done and thank you to the lovely 8DD who also filled up their tube.
