Winter Wonderland Market alert!

It may seem too early even to think about Christmas shopping (shh…we’ll whisper it!), but do put Saturday November 18th into your diary! Our Parents’ Association will be hosting another of their amazing, hugely popular Winter Wonderland seasonal fairs – a chance to shop for gifts, food and decorations all under one roof in The Barn at HOHS and with plenty to keep the family happy too. Watch this space for more details over the coming weeks and months but in the meantime, if you or anyone you know would like to take a stall, please contact Joy at pa@hohs.co.uk

THANK YOU to the Parents’ Association – and would you like to join us?

THANK YOU on speech bubble price labels During the headmaster’s address on Speech Day, Mr Crump thanked all the members of our wonderful Parents’ Association for the fantastic job they do – especially with our very popular summer fete and Christmas markets. These events raise valuable funds for a variety of ‘extras’ for pupils of all ages to enjoy and to enhance their experience at school. This school year, for example, the PA has funded new wooden play equipment in the Nursery as well as several laptops for use in the Prep school and a new portable pa system.

Chair of the PA Joy Elsley spoke to the assembled families and friends about the work of the PA, inviting new members to step forward and join. “We are looking for new members to join us once a month for an hour to provide ideas and support for our future events,” she said. “The atmosphere is relaxed and amusing at times… we would love to see you there and you will be made very welcome.”
If you would like to find out more, please email Joy at PA@hohs.co.uk
