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

Active Kids vouchers wanted!

Thank you so much  to everyone who has brought in Active Kids vouchers from Sainsburys  this year.  We will be able to swap them for some great sports equipment for use by all age groups.

The deadline is looming for the vouchers and we will be counting ours up and submitting them soon, so please bring any you still have into school by this Friday. The collection box is on the table just outside our Reception, clearly identifiable with the Active Kids branding. Thanks again!

The sun has got his hat on…

We hope the weather will stay summery this week, particularly for our Sports Day on Wednesday, but of course it is important that the children are well protected with sunscreen and their named sun hats. Parents –  please check that they have them for school every day so that they can all enjoy break time and sports without risk of burning. We will make sure everyone has plenty to drink!

Children and the news

We know that some children can get very worried about events they hear about in the news, and this week many have felt upset and anxious about what’s happened in Manchester.   Mr Peace led a very appropriate assembly this morning reassuring children that adults are here to listen to them if they ever have any worries about anything, not just the news. If you find your children are still anxious, there is a useful feature on the BBC newsround site. This is the link:
