Welcome to Goodwood House!
Welcome back to all those students who are in Goodwood House. To those of you who are joining Goodwood this year either as year seven or new students to the College, I am delighted to be able to introduce myself as your Head of House.
Goodwood is a House that succeeds, both individually and collectively. We had a fantastic year 2012-2013, with all the students in the House working hard to uphold all the qualities that make a Goodwood student so important to the College. Everybody worked hard as a team and as result we came first in three of the Cups/Shields presented at the end of year whole college assembly. We also came runners up in two other awards. Goodwood were especially sporty this year making Crookhorn history by winning Sports Day in September and again in July. We also came a very close second in he Sports Competition Shield. We are very proud of our Enterprise team as they won the Enterprise cup selling the most key rings.
It is now official Goodwood are the hardest working house as we won the Commendations Cup. Students gained the most commendations which is an excellent achievement to be very proud off, and with House points combined we came second place in the House Cup. We also did very well in attendance, narrowly missing out winning the Attendance Cup by 0.3%.
Goodwood Head gardeners Harry Robinson and Kai Chandler have continued doing a great job with the Goodwood garden. The apple tree has produced lots of apples this year.
As a House Goodwood have decided to continue supporting the charity Help for Heroes. We raised £600 last year through non uniform days and events that were organized by the Enterprise team. A great success was the summer community action day that included Goodwood tutors volunteering for sponge the Goodwood teacher. On Friday the 25th October we will again be holding a charity awareness day for year 8s.
Goodwood have an excellent team in place for this year; House Captain Chloe Thomas Newton, Deputy House Captain Ben Colley, Senior Prefect Louise Jordan, House Sports Captain Courtney Andrade, Rewards Captains Gabby Chantrey and Olivia Rhinehart, Enterprise Captain Jordan Townley, Events Captain Rebecca Clark and Marketing Captain Matthew Williams..
With this team in place Goodwood will undoubtedly continue to grow, continue to progress and continue to be Glorious.
