Vela is one of the three constellations that used to form the huge constellation Argo Navis, the ship of Jason and the Argonauts. In 1763 Nicolas Louis de Lacaille divided the Argo Navis into three constellations: Carina (the Keel), Puppis (the Stern), and Vela (the Sail).

In Vela house we discuss our problems to find solutions. We value honesty. We always AIM HIGH!

In Vela House we work together to promote success. A team of dedicated tutors manage the important time spent in House groups every morning. They really enjoy getting to know their tutees throughout their time at Tollbar.

The views of all Vela students are also taken into account throughout their time at Tollbar Academy. We hold regular House Council meetings to discuss any issues affecting their day to day lives that will allow them to progress and reach their full potential and beyond.

Achievements

Throughout the year Vela students have taken part in all Inter-house competitions and events. This year we achieved first place in both the Technology and Science competitions. The Vela students should be congratulated for their efforts shown throughout both the subject and sporting competitions. Everyone involved in Vela will work hard to encourage even more to participate in these enjoyable events throughout the year.

As the interest and enthusiasm for the competitions continues to grow, we are sure to succeed in many more areas during the coming years.
