Privett House Captain Farewell
As the year comes to a close, Privett house once again managed to showcase to the world what capabilities lie in our sacred blue blood. Whether it was the wave of mullets that flooded throughout the school led by the one and only Privett barber. Or if it was the Head Prefect creating the ingenious Average Human Awards. Everywhere you turned there would be Privett lighting the way for the rest of the school to follow.
Following the catastrophic COVID-19 bubble year where life was looking grim, the school was calling for a spark of hope to get us past these dark times and guess who delivered? Privett House.
The fresh new brothers of Privett pulled up in style and fit in right away. They took the year by storm as they secured a victory in Fun & Games then blew the competition out the water in Interhouse Eco-Challenge. Right out the gate the energy was contagious and it flowed throughout the entire house. And then, of course, the staple of Privett, Airband. The odds were stacked against us as the lingering question “Will Privett get X’ed again” grew louder and louder as rules tightened and the date of Airband approached. Not only did we not get X’ed, we put on a show for the ages. Performance after performance, the boys left the audience in awe and disbelief. As they walked out the Killy that day, the boys celebrated in unison knowing they put forth a spectacular work of art.
This year has been like no other. After last year, the importance of having gratitude for the people and things you care about was brought to light. As we stood together behind our phenomenal Houseparents, we pushed through the pandemic as a house to make the year as enjoyable as possible. First the 9s, constantly bringing charisma, character, and good food to the table. The 10s, who always found a reason to not be in bed on time. The 11s, a group oozing with potential and spirit. I can’t wait to see what you guys do as prefects when you take the reins of the house next year.
To my fellow Grade 12s, man we’ve almost made it. As heart-wrenching as it is to say goodbye, the memories and friendships made in those blue halls will last for years to come. I’m so thankful to be a part of this amazing brotherhood that we have in Privett House.
Last but not least, a huge thank you to our house staff. Thank you for keeping us from hitting the sprinklers and finishing the year off in one piece. Your presence is valued way more than you realize and we forever are grateful for your time and kindness.
Bleed Blue Forever & Always!
Nathan Onasanya, House Captain ‘22
