The house mascots were decided by our learners at GFS. A competition for them to create a house mascot was held. We had lots of different ideas and entries and eventually decided on the mascots listed above. We are very excited to have mascots attached to each house as we are able to refer to each house by their animal mascots, creating a strong bond between us all. Take a look below to see what our House Mascots look like!
- Earth Frogs – Crazy Frog (Axel F)
- Fiery Phoenixes – Firework (Katy Perry)
- Air Dragons – Put Your Hands Up in the Air (Danzel)
- Water Wolves – Blue Da Ba Dee (Eiffle 65)
Our learners LOVE hearing their house songs, especially when they are played at the end of each week when the results are announced. We also play these at various events and competitions that we run throughout the year. If you do not know your house song yet…get to know it!
All four houses have a different pose, and this is related to the house mascot. Learners show us their house pose when we see them around school and during competitions. Have a look below to see each house pose…make sure you learn your house pose!
