Being house captain. Finally. Very new to me.
True, I am lucky, very. True, it's a very coveted post.....
The full implication of it hasn't hit me properly yet....
Yeah, it does mean bunking like crazy to get people to enlist for various teams.....
It means taking responsibility....For the performance of your house....
Welcome to Yellow House.
We've been coming fourth (We have four houses, Red, blue, green, yellow) for.......well, as many years as I've been in school.
And now, this girl who does no other sport than her athletics must get the demoralised demotivated students to actually work for it.
At the same time keeping her studies up.
Mission not-so-impossible. This one lasts a full year. Ooh babe we gonna have fun.
Meanwhile, we have a new principal. We had morning assembly today, and our Vice principal asked us to welcome him in "true ISM tradition", ie applause. Not really a tradition, no.
True ISM tradition was after a speech lasting 20 minutes, most of which we did not listen to, we applauded in the hope that he'd stop. Yep, THAT'S our tradition.
The only line of his speech which actually stuck in our heads: "I will be briefing you like this every assembly"
