My name is Mrs Stephen and I have the honour of being the Head of Bodiam House at the Ashdown Primary Junior site.
After a very close run contest we are now able to congratulate the House Captains for 2021/2022! All the staff were thrilled with the end result and I am pleased to be able to announce that Bodiam's very well deserving House Captains are:
I'm really excited about working with Tate and Millie this year and I know that they are going to be fabulous representatives for our brilliant house!
See below for updates on our fabulous inter-house competitions which are run termly.
TERM 4 DEBATING COMPETITION
This term's competition kicked off with the question...
Should 10-year-olds have a mobile phone?
TERM 3 CHESS COMPETITION
The inter-house chess competition came to a gripping conclusion with the house champions playing some terrific chess in a four-way showdown. Huge congratulations to Harry for representing Bodiam so brilliantly and competing against some of the oldest children in the school in order to reach the final. We have very high hopes for future years and firmly believe that Harry will be a champion of the future!

TERM 1 OPAL OUTDOOR 'WORKING TOGETHER' CHALLENGE
Whenever a play leader sees an example of someone utilising the OPAL equipment well, tidying up well or supporting another child, then they are given a point. The house captains have been encouraged to "rally their troops"! and at the end of the challenge, the house with the most points will be announced the winner.
Lots of points were given out and it was great to see everyone working so well together. Congratulations to Arundel which was the winning house this term.
