U14 and U16 badminton v Thorpe St Andrew High School

This evening saw both our U14 and U16 badminton teams play a strong Thorpe St Andrew side. Although both teams suffered defeats, with the final scores being 6-3 and 5-4 respectively, there were some notable successes, with special mention going to Harriet and Mia who won all of their matches (again!). My thanks  to Rebekah who stepped in to play in Izzy’s absence.

Great start for HOHS U14 and U16 badminton teams

After a well-earned festive break, the PE Department wasted no time in springing back into action, starting with the U16 and U14 badminton teams playing against Norwich High School for Girls yesterday.

The U16 team won their match with notable performances from Amy, Alice, Izzy and Philippa, who won all their games. Fabulous start to this year!

Despite a close finish, the U14 team were not victorious on this occasion, winning four games to their five, and with notable performances from Mia and Harriet who won all their games. Another great start!

Thank you to Rebekah and Cristina who both stepped in at the last minute, and particularly to the Year 11 girls who played immediately after their exams. I suspect the shuttlecocks received a fair pounding as a source of stress relief!

Should old acquaintance be forgot in Year 1?

This week Year 1 are learning about new year: what it means and the traditions surrounding it. Mrs Bird is teaching them “Auld Lang Syne” – and what better place to practise than in front of a glowing log fire in our main hall? Hooray for HOHS and hooray for 2018!
