House Leader: Mr Edwards

Deputy House Captain: Jamie Breakspear Holt
Ethos: Taking part
Motto: It’s not the winning but the taking part that counts
A phrase echoed by the founder of the Olympics, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, said "The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well."
Taking part is essential for our development as human beings, exploring the unknown and striving to better ourselves by giving us opportunities to try new things, learn new things and perhaps along the way discover new talents or interests. Being part of House Venus we want you to give it a go, take part, enjoy that moment, maybe discover a new talent and most importantly learn more about yourself. In the end whether you come first or last, it does not matter, what matters is that you learn so much by taking part. Take all the chances that you can and give it a try!
