Time for another look at our Hethersett Old Hall School video!

It’s just about a year since our HOHS promotional video was launched – and it had over 3,000 views when it appeared on our Facebook page! It still gives us that “aaaah” feeling, and reflects our happy, thriving school very well – so why not give it another look? Click here to link to  the video on youtube and let’s get the number of views there up!

The film was made by Winnie (Wing-Yee,  pictured below), a former HOHS pupil who is now a film maker.

Happy St Patrick’s Day from HOHS!

Did you know that St Patrick, the famous fifth-century missionary and Patron Saint of Ireland, wasn’t originally from the Emerald Isle? It is thought that he was kidnapped by pirates when he was a teenager and taken to Ireland as a slave looking after animals. Then, later, he escaped but had a vision telling him to go back and spread the word about Christianity.  It is believed that St Patrick  used the shamrock, with its three leaves in one plant, to explain the Holy Trinity.  In assembly this week, Upper and Lower Prep pupils learned all about the famous saint – and our dining room was decorated with shamrocks and leprechauns for a distinctly Irish lunch menu of Beef and Guinness sausages and colcannon!

Never a dull moment in the Nursery…

Our Nursery children are busy bees from the moment they arrive at school until they are collected! They have such a lot of fun and there’s so much learning to do!

At HOHS you’re never too young for hockey!

We had a great half term of hockey for all ages as you may have read in Miss Mickleburgh’s hockey report. Here are Year 2 in full kit having a lesson towards the end of term in the sports hall, and getting ready to go to an away fixture. They have really enjoyed their hockey lessons, learning dribbling, passing, tackling and shooting skills as well as playing games and learning the rules. Well done, everyone!
