Former HOHS pupil inspires girls to study science

It’s wonderful to see former HOHS student Joy Chianu promoting science subjects to young women in this video from the prestigious McGill University in Canada. Joy, who won a scholarship to study chemical engineering there, achieved outstanding results in her biology, chemistry, physics and maths A Levels at HOHS, as well as in her EPQ. We are very proud of Joy and how she is encouraging other young women to study STEM subjects.

• We love to hear how our former students are getting on so if you have any exciting news, please get in touch with us.

Prep School Christingle Service this afternoon

We are so looking forward to our beautiful Christingle service at 2.00pm at St Remigius Church this afternoon and seeing all our Lower Prep families.

All children from Nursery to Year 6 have been making their Christingles at school and brought in their Christingle candles, kindly filled with spare change at home (thank you!). Here are some of them waiting to go to the church later. All proceeds to go to The Children’s Society

Sentences are fun!

They certainly are when you are in Year 3 or Year 4!  In this photo, Lucia is directing her classmates in this photo to punctuate a sentence correctly!

Fantastic Mr Fox Excitement for Years 3 and 4!

Pupils in Years 3 and 4 have been reading Roald Dahl’s book, Fantastic Mr Fox, in preparation for their theatre trip next Thursday  to see the touring stage production. Their English lessons are full of exciting tasks based on the popular novel and we are all looking forward to seeing it come to life at the Theatre Royal!

Time for another look at our Hethersett Old Hall School video!

It’s just about a year since our HOHS promotional video was launched – and it had over 3,000 views when it appeared on our Facebook page! It still gives us that “aaaah” feeling, and reflects our happy, thriving school very well – so why not give it another look? Click here to link to  the video on youtube and let’s get the number of views there up!

The film was made by Winnie (Wing-Yee,  pictured below), a former HOHS pupil who is now a film maker.

The 2016 Hethersett Old Hall School video is now on Youtube!

We have had almost 3,000 views of our new promotional video since it launched via Facebook a couple of weeks ago…and now, finally, we’ve managed to upload it to our Youtube channel as well!

Even if you have already viewed it, please would you take a moment to watch it again via Youtube, to help boost the number of views there? It is such a sweet little film and completely reflects what our happy, thriving school is like, as several parents have commented. We want as many people as possible to see it! Thanks again to Winnie (Wing-Yee,  pictured below), a former HOHS pupil who filmed us at work and play!

Thank you – and have a great long weekend, everyone.

Our new video is here!

Many thanks to former pupil Wing-Yee Ngai for working with us to produce this video which, we think, completely reflects the heart of our friendly school. Thanks also to the pupils who took part so enthusiastically in the filming, whether they were aware of the camera or not!

We are working through some technical issues with uploading the video itself here, but meanwhile you can view a low resolution version on our Facebook page.
