A massive thank you to all those who applied for the House Captain role this year. It was really wonderful to see so many nominees. Brilliant campaigns presented by all, Daniella Dunn, Xanthe McAllister, Francesca Kiting and Lizzy Smith. Thank you all so much for your hard work!
It was a tight vote and Mr Rye and Miss Junaideen are happy to present Dan, Rhiannon and Courtney as Tallinn's new House Captains. Congratulations guys, we look forward to working with you this year!
Hi, my name is Rhiannon and I am so glad that I get to be a Tallinn House Captain! I have been at Dane Court since year 7 so I am very familiar with the school and I know what the students want. At the moment I am also volunteering at a local youth club so I am very used to be co-operating and working with 11-16 year olds. I have new ideas for house events, for example more student vs. teacher events, and I am happy for anyone to come to me with any idea of what they may want to do in the future! I want the students to have more say in what we do! So I want to hear from you. So please come and me and the other house captains with ideas or problems and I assure you that we will try our best to help.
Hi I'm Dan and I'm one of Tallinn's new house captains!! My main aim as house captain is to make the house competitions fun and get as many people joining in and enjoying them as possible. Another of my main aims is to get an inter house football competition as I know that the majority of people in the school have wanted one for years!
Outside of school I enjoy playing football, which I do regularly. I also love music and being at music concerts and festivals. My favourite thing to do is go on holiday and travel abroad and cannot wait to travel the world. I went on the South Africa and Namibia trip last summer with the school and it was the best experience of my life shared with the best people! My favourite place to be is on a football pitch. I love sport, I'll take part in almost any sport or game!
Hi, I'm Courtney and I am one of the Tallinn House Captains. I am motivated, competitive, approachable and I'd love to make this year a very successful one for Tallinn. This is my sixth year at Dane Court and it has been a really enjoyable experience. I volunteer for 1st St. Peter's Sea Scout Group in both the Cub and Scout sections and I am a member of Margate Yacht Club. Well that's a quick bit about me, looking forward to our year ahead.
