This week in our final week before half term, we were delighted to see our Year 7 students take part in one of our favourite school traditions; House Storytelling!
In this annual event, each House is tasked with picking a story to reenact in short form in front of their peers in assembly. The standard and quality of performance displayed by our students is always of the highest standard, and this year was certainly no different.
For this year’s event, the performances were split into two sections to really maximise the fun and extend the competition. On Monday, we were treated to two excellent stories courtesy of Demeter and Hestia, who performed ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea’ respectively. On Friday, it was the turn of Selene and Artemis to perform, and they treated us to ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’ and ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’.
All four Houses put on wonderful displays, and and our youngest members of the Senior School really outdid themselves with their energetic and passionate displays, ably led by their Sixth Form comrades.
The competition was fierce, and a judging panel of Miss Lycett, Mrs Hopley, Mr Williams and Risha from the SSLT faced a difficult decision to determine a winner. After a short musical interlude, the judges returned with their decision. Head judge Mr Williams was given the honours, and after relaying their feedback he announced Artemis as this year’s winner!
A huge congratulations to Artemis for a well deserved victory, and they are the first recipients of the new House Storytelling trophy in the form of a teddy bear sporting their House colours, which you will see above!
A huge thank you to all of our students for their efforts in making this year’s competition one to remember. Special thanks also go to our judges, and Mr Laubscher for his tireless efforts in making our House events so special. We are already excited for House Plays which will take place before the Christmas break!
