We love the international dimension our overseas boarders bring to school life – but today we had to say goodbye to two of them, Paula and Lucia. After several years of visiting HOHS and boarding, the girls are returning to Spain to start their Sixth Form studies. Both girls have become like family and will be staying in touch through weekly Skype chats and hope to visit us again some time in the coming year. Paula’s little sister has already started her yearly visits to us and so we continue the HOHS tradition of hosting girls from around the world. Lucia and Paula describe the school as their second home and the boarders as their sisterhood. There were tears all round as they left us this morning. Good luck, girls!
