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

Summer Fete: see you all tomorrow!

Our beautiful gardens have been a hive of activity this morning as tents go up, barbecues are positioned and other essential preparations take place for tomorrow’s HOHS Summer Fete. Meanwhile, Miss Hopwood has been working hard at lunchtimes all week with the children who will be performing Maypole dances, making sure they perfect their skipping and ribbon-weaving moves!

With entertainers, fairground rides, tea-and-cake tent, inflatables, games, barbecue, treasure hunt and stalls galore, this is a fun event for all the family. And don’t miss out on our grand raffle  – there are some amazing prizes including two brand new bikes, signed items from Norwich City FC and many more. Tickets will be on sale on the day.

Entry to the fete is free – look forward to seeing you there!

Father Christmas, Reindeer and crafting at HOHS

This morning saw lots of smiles and fun as families came together in the Barn to do some Christmas-themed crafting together and chat to Father Christmas. Meanwhile, outside, two of his reindeer were ready to show us how much they like carrots! Thanks to our hardworking PA members for organising this – and for serving delicious mince pies, soup and other goodies, too!
