Hi we are Scarlett and Ethan, the house captains of Pocock. We like being house captain because we like to help children and encourage people to try more things.
Our house name is Pocock. Maggie Pocock is a space scientist. She is very inspirational because she never gave up on her dream. When she was a child she wanted to be a space scientist but she was told she couldn’t be because she was a black female and most scientists were old, white men. She was also dyslexic.
When she was a child she told her teacher she wanted to be an astronaut but her teacher said she would be better as a nurse. But she didn’t let that bother her; he was determined to become a scientist.
