After looking at persuasive techniques in the Zone and having been sorted into Houses by the “Hat of Destiny” and the “Box of Decision”, Year 7 students were asked to produce a persuasive speech outlining why they should be elected to the important position of House Captain. Each house then selected 6 candidates to go forward to a Year 7 election.

The selected candidates:

During assembly on Monday 10th October the candidates will have a final opportunity to explain to the Year group why they should be considered for the House Captain position. After these speeches, voting will take place to elect a male and female Captain for each house.

Good luck to all of the candidates, you have about 2 weeks in which to campaign and polish your speeches!
