There’s still time to buy tickets for tomorrow or Thursday!

Mrs Richards, the cast and crew of our senior production are at the Puppet Theatre all day today for a technical rehearsal, in preparation for tomorrow’s opening night of Daisy Pulls it Off.   Please come and support them and enjoy a splendid evening’s entertainment! Tickets are still available from Reception if you have mislaid your order form.

Daisy Pulls it Off by Denise Deegan is a romp through life in a 1920s girls’ boarding school…as the poster says: “an absolutely topping comedy about midnight feasts, dorm fights, spiffing hockey matches and hidden treasure!”

Open Morning procedure for pupils

balloonsonlyJust a reminder to all our pupils (from Reception – Year 13) who are coming into school this Saturday for our Open Morning.

Please arrive at school between 9.30 – 9.45 am and enter via the side gates, not the front door. You will need to go directly to your form room for registration at 10am before heading off to join the teacher you are assisting. At the end of Open Morning pupils should leave school via side gates not via reception.

Those pupils acting as guides should come to the Entrance Hall at 9.45 and register with Mrs Jones.

Please remember to wear your full uniform including hats and make sure you’re looking extra neat and tidy on the day!

Barnaby Bear gets lost…and found!

Polly (Year 1) had a very exciting ski trip to Switzerland at half term. She took HOHS’s very own Barnaby Bear with her (we all know he likes to travel and see different places to tell us about!) But Barnaby got left on the plane home from Geneva by mistake, leaving Polly very upset. Luckily, the adventurous bear turned up at Polly’s grandparents’ house complete with a new t-shirt and a label tied around his neck explaining that he had been found and posted back. So everyone was happy!

Here is Polly (below left) with Barnaby and her friend Sophia (also Year 1) , who is holding the fantastic diary Polly’s mother helped her to create while they were on holiday. You can see Barnaby looking a bit sorry for himself with his label on!
