Today we had our first house session for 2013. It was so much fun!
At Selwyn House, we have five houses and twice a term it is the House Leaders' job to plan a twenty minute gathering to help the younger girls get to know the older girls and also to build community within the house group. It is always a highlight of the school week; we love spending time with other year groups within the school.
Today was our first time taking a House session. There were some surprises.
"It was lots of fun but hardest to motivate some of the Year 7s to play the games we had planned,"said Samantha.
"There were some challenging girls in my group but I think they had fun," said Izzy
"We thought we could improve on House sessions but it is much harder than it looks," Kate said.
"Learning how to gain and maintain the girls' attention at the YMCA was so helpful," Izzy said.
Here's Abby telling us about the Arawa house session.
