At Kingswells School we operate a system where the children are split into four houses which compete against each other each term to win house points.
Our four houses are called Brimmond, Edmond, Fairley and Jaffray after the local areas of Kingswells.
The pupils of Kingswells Primary hold a vote each year to elect a House Captain from P7 and a Vice-Captain from P6.
These roles also come with added responsibility within the school. The Captains and Vice-Captains may have to show important people around the school for example.
Children are given house points for a number of things within the school term – it may be for good work, good behaviour, showing kindness, being thoughtful to others, or being helpful to the teachers or members of staff.
This encourages the children to work hard and be good members of the wider community. At the end of each term the points are tallied and everybody in the winning team are rewarded with a special activity held during school time. Previous prizes were a session of Zumba, Karate, Yoga and a movie with popcorn. All great fun!
