Saturday at the Ski Slope

On Friday night, the boarding house held a sleepover and were joined by some pupils from Year 9. On Saturday morning, we all went to the Norfolk Snowsports Club for a tubing session. For those of you who have never seen tubing before, you sit in what looks like a large inner tube and go down a ski slope! Everyone had a great time sliding and spinning down the slope individually and then together. The picture below shows some the students that took part.

Fabulous Fete!

So many visitors commented on the lovely, friendly atmosphere at our fete today – it really was a wonderful day and,  with the sun shining warmly for most of the time, the last-minute rain didn’t dampen our spirits! Thanks to the PA for organising such a great event, and thanks to all who came – we hope you all had a great time! We think the pictures say it all….

Boarders’ cycling adventures

This weekend the boarders went cycling in Thetford Forest. Luckily the rain stopped but there were plenty of puddles and we all got a bit muddy. Some of us were really fast and some of us (me!) were very rusty… but we all finished the course and had great fun.

Wanted – holiday homes for Winnie and Bubbles!

A plea from our boarders: would any of our families like to step forward to offer a holiday home for their two guinea pigs over the half term break at the end of May or in the summer holidays? Winnie and Bubbles, our ‘piggies’,  are easy to look after, fun and quite cuddlesome! If you can help, please email boarding@hohs.co.uk as soon as possible.

Camel rides for boarders

On Saturday our boarders had a lovely time at the Oasis Camel Centre in Suffolk – the UK’s only camel park. The weather was amazing, hot and sunny all day. As well as meeting and learning about the camels, we fed the llamas, donkeys, meerkats and goats. There were also some gorgeous rabbits with beautiful soft coats that the girls really wanted to bring back to the boarding house with them. The highlight of the trip was the camel ride, which the girls declared “magnificent” and “excellent”!
