House Captain Interviews:  What Do You Love Most About Your House?

House Captain Interviews: What Do You Love Most About Your House?

Amidst the hustle and bustle of work during the school year, CIS’s Student Council likes to help students unwind with House Activities Day, commonly known as HAD. HAD happens three times a year and as students are sorted into their respective houses (take the House Quiz here!), each has the chance to show off their athletic abilities, activity skills and, most importantly, house pride when participating. 

With the first HAD of the year tomorrow, we asked some very special house members a few questions about their respective teams. Here’s what our House Captains had to say!


House Narra

Stronger than steel, hotter than the sun, Narra won’t stop ‘til we get the job done!

How long have you been House Captain and why did you decide to run?

I only ran for House Captain this year, but I feel like I’m a good representation of what Narra is, which is why I decided to run.

What do you love most about your house?

We’re extremely competitive and we love to win and I feel like we’re really close with one another.

What makes a good House Captain?

Someone who can bring the team up as best as they can and bring out the best in everyone.

Can you come up with an impromptu cheer for your house right now?
