House

h captains15I am more than happy to announce that after many year 12 sixth formers were charitable enough to put themselves forward to be voted this year, the new Helsinki House Captains are James Mileham, Nick Short, and me - Kiana Stevens. We are so grateful for everyone who has voted for us this year as it gives great confidence to know that so many of you have faith in what we believe we can achieve as a house this year. We hope that you feel comfortable enough to be more than happy to approach us about anything you feel that either would improve Helsinki, or that you have enjoyed, we also would love to get to know you all individually.

t captains15We would like to take the time to thank everyone who voted for us. We are honoured that you saw us as the best people to lead Tallinn in the house competitions over the next year. We believe that success is not coming first but instead it is achieving our full potential. We definitely have the potential to come in the top three and I hope with strong leadership and participation to the fullest extent we will achieve a good ranking.

The PE department swung into acton organising an impressive range of challenges from staff versus students dodgeball and non-stop badminton to climbing a mountain on our school climbing wall.
