House Captain: Theresemaria


I am the house captain of Santiago. All of the houses are in competition to win the most house points by showing kindness, respect, good manners and excellent behaviour. Our goal is to be the winning house at the end of the year because we will be treated with a special surprise at the end. My role as house captain is to be:

  •  a good role model
  •  Accurately count the house points with my deputy
  •  Demonstrate to the younger children kindness (so they can get more house points!)
  • I hope my house will make lots of progress and win. 


Deputy: Millie


I am Millie, the deputy House Captain of Santiago. 

I am fair, respectful, understanding, kind and generous. I am a fun, joyful, caring person and a problem solver, so if anyone needs help with work or friendship problems, I am happy to help. I am a team player but can also be a team leader if needed and I will help everyone and anyone whenever I can. 


Our house is Santiago. This is named after the Cathedral in Galicia, Spain; where Saint James the Great is buried. Saint James the Great was an apostle of Jesus. It is one of three churches in their world that is built over the tomb of an apostle.


I want to encourage and motivate members of Santiago to the best they can be and to achieve the best that they can.
