Maughold House Update
We are the Maughold prefects from 11MC5. Our names are Charlotte, Erin, Feena and Reema. We are very excited to get to know everyone.
Last half term the school hosted the Badminton and Spelling Bee inter-house competitions. The results were as follows:
- Year 7 Badminton – Maughold finished in 2nd place. Very well done to Mair.
- KS4 Badminton – Maughold finished in 1st place. Amazing achievement Kitty!!
- Unfortunately, we had no participants in the Year 8 or 9 event so please put your names forward for our future competitions.
The final results of the Spelling Bee are yet to be calculated as we are still waiting on the year 7 competition. Watch this space for further updates!
Ros from the library is ‘checking out’ our readers each half term and seeing which house checks out the most books to read. Last half term, Maughold came 3rd. Let’s try and go for the top spot this time and get reading!
All of the results so far means that Maughold House finished in joint 2nd place with Conister. Well done to all involved.
This half term is also very busy with both a table tennis tournament and Ballakermeen’s very own Balla’s Got Talent. We are also eagerly awaiting our famous Christmas Market on the 30th November in which our house will be running a; coconut shy, ‘guess the sweets’ and guess the name of the teddy bear stall. All money raised from these stalls will be going to our house charities, Manx Blind Welfare and ActionAid. We will also have a dedicated ActionAid stall on the night of the Christmas Market if anyone would like any more information about this charity or if you wish to make a donation.
We really hope that everyone has a great end to our first term back in school and would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas and an even better New Year.
Until we meet again,
Charlotte, Erin, Feena and Reema
