As promised, I intend to keep you up to date on my school's four houses as they compete against eachother in athletic and academic competitions...
Druk (Dragon) House is off to an early lead, having placed first in the Spelling Contest, first in the boy's football tournament, and second in the girl's football tournament.
Tak (Tiger) House is a close second. They placed first in the girl's football tournament and second in the boy's football tournament.
Chung (there isn't any word for it in English: see picture above) House and Seng (Lion) House are currently tied in third. In each football tournament one placed third and the other came last but won "most sportsmanlike".
I have a soft spot in my heart for Seng House because their boys captain is the most diligent in his litter collection duty. I congratulated him once on the huge armful of waste he was bringing to the dustbin. His response was, "Principal Sir says captains should lead by example!"
