Boarders go in search of the Gruffalo

This weekend the boarders explored Thetford Forest in the hunt for The Gruffalo. After downloading the free app, they bravely headed out into the forest to search for clues and gather evidence that The Gruffalo had been by. As you will see from the photos, they found him, and he very kindly posed for some shots! The other Gruffalo characters were out and about, too, and before the rain set in the girls had managed to find them all and gather the evidence they needed that the forest really is home to all sorts of furry and feathered friends.

It’s coming next week..have you got your tickets yet?

All families have been sent an order form for tickets for our simply spiffing Senior Production, which is being performed at Norwich Puppet Theatre next Wednesday and Thursday evenings, 22nd and 23rd March.   Mrs Richards, the cast and crew have been working very hard rehearsing so don’t miss out on what is sure to be a great evening’s entertainment, suitable for all ages from Prep to great-grandparents.  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
