Our house is named after the British First World War nurse Edith Cavell. Edith Cavell is a true heroine for showing such bravery and helping countless wounded soldiers of all nationalities during the war. She was arrested for helping some of these soldiers escape. Her actions are exemplary to us, helping anyone no matter who they are or where they are from. She once said, “I can’t stop while there are lives to be saved.” We as a house look up to Edith Cavell for her courage and selflessness.
Cavell’s house colour is blue. Our mascot is Eeyore.
