February 16, 2007 -
The staff and students of St. James Catholic School in Lively invite you to view a new episode of HOUSE on Friday, February 23, 2007 at the school located at 280 Anderson Drive, (across from the Tom Davies Arena). All the HOUSE cast will assemble at 1:00 p.m. in the school gym. Although Dr. Gregory House will not be making an appearance you can watch the whole school implement the concept of HOUSE.|
Launched in the fall, HOUSE program works to improve school spirit, teamwork between staff and students, co-operation within the school, leadership of intermediate students and the overall development of academic, social and athletic skills.
Everyone in the entire school is on a team, except the gatekeeper (vice-principal) who awards the points. These houses act as teams throughout the year. During the school year, houses have been in competition with each other in trying to obtain the highest amount of points. Points are awarded for behaviour, sportsmanship, cooperation, academic excellence and leadership.
The HOUSE episode this month will feature a math activity whereby all HOUSE teams will be involved in the task.
