Fond farewells to our ‘gappies’!

1 Comment

Our three  popular gap year students, Laura Whiteley, Gemma Erdelyi-Gotz and  Olivia Leontiades,  joined us from Australia and Tasmania at the beginning of January last year and quickly became part of the team at HOHS.  Thoroughly immersing themselves  in school life – classrooms,  boarding house and office –  they gained lots of  varied and useful experience in their year with us. They certainly won the hearts of staff and pupils alike!  As Miss Cushing, Senior House Mistress says, “the girls have been  brilliant!  They arrived as staff and leave as family”.  
Today, after enjoying some free time  in Germany, where they visited some of the famous Christmas markets,  they return to London to take the long flights back to their homes down under.  By a strange coincidence,  although the girls had not met before arriving at HOHS, they are now all off to university in the same city – Melbourne.

We wish the girls all the very best for the future and offer our thanks for the wonderful contribution they have made to our school life.
