At Juniper Green we have 4 houses:
The Houses are named after hills in the Pentlands.
Each House has a House Captain and a Vice House Captain who are democratically elected at the end of P6 as part of work looking at democracy. This provides a real-life context to explore elections, voting and the democratic system at work. The winning teams then have to live up to their manifesto pledges!
Some recent changes as a result of election pledges have been: red sweatshirts for P7, more fun fundraising days (such as Onesie Day, Comic Relief, Unicef Day for Change) and opening up the wildlife garden at break and lunchtimes.
