Evergreen operates a house system. Every child and member of staff is given one of three houses to support. Houses are essential, as they create community spirit and give the children an opportunity to contribute to something bigger that involves children from all year groups. The children also support and raise money for the three house charities. Our houses are Salahudeen Ayubi, Dhul qarnain and Umar farook, Each house is represented by their House Captains.
The House Captains are responsible for selecting potential charities and promoting those charities, leading their house in competitions and events, and representing the school in the community. Each house is supported by a member of staff who acts as House Leader, the house system is overseen by the Headteacher. Below are our current House Leaders and House captains.
Earning House Points:
House points are awarded for model behaviour, effort in learning and other good deeds. Pupils also participate and compete in competitions and events for house points. House points are awarded using the following guidance:
- 1 house point for an isolated achievement (i.e. a one off act of kindness, helpfulness, good work etc)
- 2 house points for a sustained achievement (i.e. good behaviour for a week, an achieved target, hard work on a project etc)
- 3 house points for a special achievement (i.e. something that goes above and beyond) or a group achievement (i.e. for winning a class-based team game)
- 5 to 10 house points can be awarded for super special achievements by the Head of house
Every week, the house points are counted by our House Captains and a weekly winner announced during the Jummah Assembly. House points are then tallied over the course of a term a winner is announced, and the children in that house are rewarded with a special event. At the end of the year, once all house points are tallied, the House Champions will be announced. to see how the different houses are doing this year and to read about this year’s exciting house events.
The House Charities and Fund-raising
Each year, the newly-elected House Captains are responsible for compiling a list of possible charities that are close to the hearts of pupils, staff and parents. Then, the House Captains decide which type of charity each house will support, either a local, national, international or animal charity. Finally, the House Captains will present their shortlist to their house, who will then vote to decide upon their House Charity.
Throughout the year, each year group will have the opportunity to organise a fundraising event, with all monies going to the four house charities. Additionally, the school will continue its support for Orphans project with Islamic help and raise money for Them.
