U12 and U14 Netball Reports

Our U12 netball team had their first fixture last Wednesday against Taverham High School. Lots of positive skills on show and great team work ensured them a 5-2 victory – what a wonderful start!

The U14 team were also in action against a very tall Taverham side! Despite a valiant effort the final score was a 19-16 loss – which in netball terms is a small margin.

Well done, everyone!
Mrs Woods, Head of PE

Restarting a Heart

The British Heart Foundation Restart a Heart initiative  saw two training sessions in HOHS . Both were well-attended and a total of sixteen pupils and staff learned how to save a life using CPR techniques on our training manikins.

As an additional interest, there was a demonstration of how to use a defibrillator.

Have a look at the BHF website for a story of Sarah,  who saved her father’s life only two weeks after being trained in CPR at school.

Christmas Shoebox Appeal

Op Xmas Child logoPupils from Nursery to Year 6 took home a leaflet on Friday about the annual Christmas ‘shoebox appeal’ (Operation Christmas Child).

If your child would like to take part, they will need to find and wrap a medium-sized shoebox and lid (separately) then have fun filling it with new gifts – you will find suggested items are listed in the leaflet. A £5 suggested donation should accompany the shoebox and all  must be returned to the Prep library by Friday 10th November. The boxes are guaranteed to light up the faces of the children who receive them.

Our collection of shoeboxes will be displayed and eventually collected by a local representive for the appeal – the picture below is from our collection last year.

Thank you for your support.
