Welcome to the yellow corner! We are Kennet and we are the rays of sunshine! My name is Miss Marlow, I am a Learning Support Assistant and I am so proud to be Head of Kennet House this year. I am also looking forward to us demonstrating the Ridgeway values as well as shaping our own.
Here at Kennet we want to show that it’s not all about the winning - let’s face it, we are already golden! We more about having fun, playing to our strengths and getting involved in every way we can.
This year we really want to encourage all students to get involved in a House Challenge, which will give them the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity, athleticism, thinking skills and commitment. We will be running activities during lunch times, and encourage all students to come along throughout the year.
We have some returning favourite House Challenges to look forward to, including the Great Ridgeway Bake Off and Ridgeway’s got talent. We have got some new ones to get excited about to, including Creating a House logo, Creating a House Logo and The Race Across America.
We will also be looking to appoint new House Captains who feel really passionate about the House System. Being a House Captain will include helping to coordinate the events, acting as a runner on event days, voice opinions as part of the school council and creating team spirit!
It’s not just the mentors and I who create Kennet, it’s the students! Let’s make this year count.
