A Golden Touch from Phase 3!

Phase 3 pupils presented an excellent assembly yesterday, based on the Ancient Greek myths they have been studying in their English lessons.  The audience of pupils, teachers and family members were treated to an outstanding performance of the story of King Midas, in which the children acted, danced and sang with confidence and beautifully clear voices.  The tale ended with a song reminding us of moral that we should all follow: ‘It isn’t gold, it isn’t wealth, the most precious thing is life itself’,  before the children spent some happy moments with their proud families.

A big thank you to all the parents, grandparents and family members who came along. They now know what their children are wishing for, thanks to the mini Powerpoint displays  that appeared at the end of the assembly!

Red noses almost sold out…

Parents, please note that we have limited supplies of the red noses left to sell tomorrow and Friday – so if your child doesn’t already have one, or wants another, please ensure they come to buy theirs promptly at break time! We’ll announce how much we have raised after Friday, which is Red Nose Day itself – remember, it is a non uniform day so please wear something red!

There’s still time to buy tickets for tomorrow or Thursday!

Mrs Richards, the cast and crew of our senior production are at the Puppet Theatre all day today for a technical rehearsal, in preparation for tomorrow’s opening night of Daisy Pulls it Off.   Please come and support them and enjoy a splendid evening’s entertainment! Tickets are still available from Reception if you have mislaid your order form.

Daisy Pulls it Off by Denise Deegan is a romp through life in a 1920s girls’ boarding school…as the poster says: “an absolutely topping comedy about midnight feasts, dorm fights, spiffing hockey matches and hidden treasure!”

Spring is on its way at HOHS – with a chance to win a prize!

Gardener Andy Young has been hard at work in the gardens, planting new things to provide colour later in the spring and summer.  This week has seen some lovely, warm sunshine and the children can now spend more time outside at break and lunchtimes. With that in mind, here is an opportunity for observant pupils to win some prizes and perhaps learn a bit about plants!

To enter, have a good look round the gardens and see how many flowers and flowering plants you can identify (they don’t have to be in bloom yet), then write down their names and where in the grounds you saw them.  You can ask Mr Young for clues if you find him!

Please bring your list to me in the office just next to Reception  by the end of term, Friday 31st March – I have some fun prizes for top entries! Alternatively, you can email your entry to marketing@hohs.co.uk
