The house captains have been working on an overhaul of the house names. You may have noticed that the current names of Da Vinci, Piccasso, Van Gogh and Monet were all male. Rather than a straight change over to all female names to improve gender representation, they decided to go with a set of non-gender specific themes and put these 4 areas to the vote. That vote came back with a clear winner of … gemstones. The new names were finalised in the Star of the Week assembly of the 18th January to much excitement. Citrine, Emerald, Garnet and Sapphire will represent the four colours yellow, green, red and blue respectively. But what do these gemstones look like, then see below.
