Hi my name is Joy and I am Phoenix’s Year 8 captain. Our motto is “let us rise from the ashes”. This motto speaks for itself. It simply implies that even if we hit rock bottom, no matter what, we will -and I repeat- we will RISE.
This phrase does not only motivate us but it makes us want to fight for what is right for our team. A trophy isn’t a toy we would joke about, neither is it to see as a flimsy piece of scrap metal, but yet it is a symbol of honour, teamwork, hardship and commitment. Working as a team is MORE THAN WHAT WE COULD ASK FOR!!! This is because good teamwork creates synergy – where the combined effect of the team is greater than the sum of individual efforts. In simple terms, we wouldn’t be the team we are today without us joining together in unity and becoming as one.
We are really determined to make our team proud. To be the high scoring team. To show Pegasus, Centaur, Dragon and Griffin how it is really done. We would not trade this team for anything.
