House Reward System
Positive, caring and responsible behaviour is encouraged, valued and recognised within Christ the King College. We believe in living and learning together in a way that enables all of us to be happy, safe and to achieve the highest possible standards in our work. Teachers will recognise achievements by awarding House Credits for a particular piece of work, positive contribution or effort within our community. House Credits will also be rewarded to students for being ‘Ready’, ‘Respectful’ and ‘Responsible’ in line with the College’s Living and Learning Together policy.
The House System is a strong vertical support structure, which will facilitate and promote relationships throughout the Year groups. It provides an additional strand for our young people to identify with peers, and both younger and older students for various communications.
The role of the student leaders within the system, is to encourage the community spirit, friendly competition and support within each House. Overview of the House System is led by Mrs Stirling.
The winning House for the academic year will be determined a week before the end of the academic year.
Each student is a member of a Tutor Group which is wholly part of a House to offer support structures from both staff and older students. House events will take place throughout the year being led by student house leaders and specific staff at each event.
‘Together we achieve - enjoy, take part and be proud!’
There are upcoming House Challenges which you may participate and earn house credits.
FIFA World Cup House Challenges
The PE department are celebrating and supporting the 2018 World Cup with a Form class competition. Each form has been drawn a Team and the idea is that you get behind the team by supporting them. There will be a prize for the form class whose team wins the world cup and also a prize for the form class who shows most support for the team.
The Library has devised a World Cup Challenge. Earn house credits during the FIFA world cup! Match the competing countries to the correct number on the map. Each correct answer wins a house credit!
For extra house points, share a FUN FOOTBALL FACT that can be verified! Did you know that the word “Soccer” is an 1800s slang term. “Soccer” comes from the abbreviation for “association,” or “assoc,” as in Football Association. According to the Online Etymology dictionary, it began as “socca,” then transformed into “socker,” and finally into “soccer.”
Deadline for Library Challenge entries: Friday 29th June 2018
Entries on this google form please. You must be logged into your College Google account to enter. The map is available here and also on the noticeboard outside the L23 Library.
