Your Summer

This week we heard from Chloe and Charlotte. They have been giving their HOHS teddy bear a tour of California. Here they are pictured at the Explatorium in San Francisco, near Pfeiffer Beach and locked away in Alcatraz. I hope teddy managed to escape!

If you would like to share your summer with us, please email marketing@hohs.co.uk. We’d love to hear from you.

Your Summer

This week we heard from Matilda. She has been in Dorset helping a bird warden ring birds. Over 900000 birds are ringed in Britain and Ireland each year. The British Trust for Ornithology runs the scheme and it is used to provide information about how long birds live and where they go.

In this photograph, Matilda is about to release a sand martin. If you’d like any more information about sand martins, please click here.

Canaries adventure for Samaara!

Great to hear from Samaara (Year 1) and her family, who have been visiting Lanzarote in the Canary Islands.  As you can see, Samaara did a lot while there; seeing the volcanoes, up close with dolphins, camel ride and parasailing!

Celebrating achievements at HOHS Speech Day

There was so much to celebrate at our Speech Day today – a lovely day and with perfect weather for the traditional family picnic on the lawns afterwards, too! A truly inspirational speech from guest Jo Cruse who used examples of young women who have become leaders in their field to speak to our girls about their futures ‘bursting with virtually limitless possibility’. She also spoke with candid honesty about the challenges and opportunities that accompany times of change – as she herself faces a crossroads. “I thought it was an amazing speech”, said Amy H (Year 11) “It was as if she was talking directly to me and understood my own thoughts and feelings, I was transfixed!”

Happy holidays, everyone!
