After-school tea invitation

cup-of-tea

We think that picking-up time at school should be a relaxing experience and a chance to chat – as plenty of our parents and staff already do, in the car park and around the school. It’s one of the advantages of being at HOHS rather than rushing into the city, after all!  The weather looks nice today for our rollover day so if you’d like to linger a little after school please join us for tea, coffee and biscuits on the lawns from 3pm.

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….

Winter Wonderland thank yous

Is it really almost a week ago? A huge thank you to everyone who helped, donated raffle prizes, baked cakes, helped set up and clear away, took a stall or just came to support our Winter Wonderland Fair last Saturday. It was much appreciated!

The whole event was relaxed and enjoyable and in terms of fundraising was a big success, with takings of over £2100 before expenses, so it will be a big boost for PA funds. Most of our 50+ stallholders had a good day and are keen to come to our summer fete next May.

We hope you all enjoyed this event as much as we did – and thanks again! More pictures of the Fair were on the blog last weekend.

Joy Elsley, PA Chair
