House Captain

By | October 21, 2014

A few weeks ago, D decided that she’d like to be put forward for House Captain.

This was amazing in itself and proof (if anymore were needed) that she is completely in the right environment for her, in her SN school.

We talked about what she might have to do and she was especially pleased at the thought that she might have to help to hand out medals on Sports Day. She does love to receive medals – just like her brother – and can get very caught up in the competitive element of the day, so for her to say she wanted to help is a big thing.

We designed a campaign poster whilst she was off school for a few days after her trike fall and we took it into school when she returned, having missed the deadline but hoped they’d understand.

D wrote her reasons for wanting to be elected on the back:

Election Day came and D was absolutely delighted that she was allowed to vote for herself!

And then we waited…one week (and assembly) passed with no news…..and then last Friday I collected a beaming D, who said she had “amazing news”.

We got outside school and she gave a huge ear-piercing squeal and said that she had been elected House Captain!

One very happy girl, now we are waiting for one of these to arrive:


Delighted for her and a teensy (well, okay a lot) bit proud of her too.

That’s so lovely! It brought a tear to my eye. Reminded me of my boy getting head boy a few weeks ago 🙂
