School Houses, any ideas???Watch
For example, the younger ones want
colours - too primary school-like
designers ie: gucci, prada, evisu and chanel
harry potter houses
'famous women': Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Lily Cole and Mischa Barton (hahaha)
but the favourite seems to be gems eg: diamond, topaz, Amethyst and emerald. Personally i think this is too young as well, it's tricky because you have to please yr7's and yr13's. hmmm
So i thought i'd ask what you think, what are your houses called (we will have 4 houses) or do you have any ideas??
Save me from being in Amethyst house
much better than the ideas which have so far been proposed
at your school. famous women could be ok as long as they
arent controversial or some modern day ***** e.g. Paris hilton....having something like Florence Nightingale on the other hand would be ok....you could also possibly use names of famous greek (ancient) states...athens, sparta etc...but that might be a bit too male...so perphas some ancient greek goddess? although if your school is religious that might also be bad.
precious stones is an awful idea imo as is the Harry Potter stuff (especially since it might cause copy right infringment).
and the whole designer idea? please...
So we have McWilliam (sculptor) Waddell (author) Crozier (polar explorer) and Dunbar (he did something too).
Yea i like the idea of greek goddesses (we're not a religious school lol) how about these:
Athena, Gaea, Echo, Electra
Me and my friends thought of foreign words for the word 'girl' :
I don't think any notable people have attended my school, but i could look into it
Anything has to be better than Hilton and Richie house...
How about just House after the bad-ass TV show?
they each have a colour association aswell, means can colour coordinate sports day support etc.
we had the names of local roads
Queens (the road the school is on)
Greek goddesses idea is quite good I think
Maybe because we just happen to be from
the same school, same form and could possibly be particular friends??
hahah I can't think of any either bud
Can't do better than the present influential women and alumni.
i really like the idea of greek goddesses and yes becca2389 i would definatley have chosen Pankhurst as an influential women, and probs Davison also because she jumped in front of the king's horse at our local racecourse
The nearest open space is named Rosebery Park - the same name as the school, they arnt very imaginative round where we live lol.
Oh well we're only there for another year...... but i want the houses to be interesting like you all have suggested, but the younger one's have reverted to primary school ie colours and gemstones
"Alroight, Oim In Versace 'ouse, wish Oi was in Gucci"
I can see it now haha
They should look up some names in well known literature. I'm sure J.K Rowling took Dumbledore and Hagrid from The Mayor of Casterbridge by Hardy as the two names are one line apart and can't be a coincendence. Good choice of names though. They need to be obscure yet neutral to appeal to everyone.
Or even some interesting words from foreign languages for example pamplemousse.
...Just kidding, maybe Shakespearean lingo or plays?
Ahh wonder what's going to be in the poll, We need to see Mr Apicella!
