Christ Church House Points
Christ Church House Point Reward System
The House Point System is designed to embody the values and ethos of Christ Church and is an integral part of our school community. Each child across the school from Reception – Year 6 are given a house to be part of.
All of the House Captains and Vice Captains have a meeting twice a half term with the Headteacher and Mr Fleming to discuss their role and implement their different ideas for their respected houses. Click the link to see the minutes of our meetings.
A little bit about why we have chosen our four houses :
Florence Nightingale is a famous British nurse who's Christian faith helped her in her mission take care of poorly soldiers and to make hospitals more sanitary places. She also wrote books about how to be a good nurse.
For Isaac Newton the world of science was by no means the whole of life. He spent more time on Theology than on science; indeed , he wrote about 1.3 million words on biblical subjects. Yet this vast legacy lay hidden from public view for two centuries until the auction of his non-scientific writings in 1936.
Rosa Parks was devoted to her faith of Christianity, often carrying her Bible with her. It was her faith in God that gave her the courage to stand up to segregation on that in December 1955. " I instantly felt God give me strength to endure whatever would happen next" she recounted. "God's peace flooded my soul and my fear melted away. All people were equal in the eyes of God and I was going to live like a free person." This courage led to massive changes in society that meant equal rights for all people.
Horrified by the poverty and suffering most people took for granted in industrial England , William Booth dedicated his life to bringing Christianity to the outcasts of society who would never enter a Church and weren't welcome there.
