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

HOHS minibus service change

By popular demand, our friendly minibus service will be leaving school later –  at 5pm – each afternoon from September, to allow pupils to attend after school clubs before dropping them home. We currently serve families living in and around Roundhouse, Cringleford, Eaton and various parts of the city.  We are very flexible, though, so wherever you are and whether you need the service every day or could just use the occasional drop-off, do speak with Linda Jones in the main school office (01603 810390). We aim to help wherever we can!

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!
