HOHS minibus service change

By popular demand, our friendly minibus service will be leaving school later –  at 5pm – each afternoon from September, to allow pupils to attend after school clubs before dropping them home. We currently serve families living in and around Roundhouse, Cringleford, Eaton and various parts of the city.  We are very flexible, though, so wherever you are and whether you need the service every day or could just use the occasional drop-off, do speak with Linda Jones in the main school office (01603 810390). We aim to help wherever we can!

Mrs Woods’ run for Great Ormond Street

HOHS Head of PE  Laura Woods was among more than 6,000 runners to complete yesterday’s Run Norwich 10km event – well done to her!  The route took competitors in a circuit around the city, passing landmarks such as the castle, cathedral and Carrow Road stadium, before finishing in front of City Hall.  Mrs Woods  writes:

“Congratulations to all those who ran in the Run Norwich 10k event yesterday,  Sunday 6th August. I ran on behalf of Great Ormond Street Hospital with a group of my friends.  I’m not as fast as the legendary Mo Farah but I still felt a huge sense of achievement, pride and relief when I crossed the finish line! Thank you to the crowds of people that supported all those who ran. The cheering really helps!! Enjoy the rest of your summer holiday.”

The Eastern Daily Press has a great gallery of photos from the event which you can browse here.

Lucky Maisy was there at the Olympic Park  to see the drama unfold and her mum has sent us these great photos we are happy to share. Thank you!

Tapas, por favor…

Year 6 reckon that language lessons should be fun, and have a practical – and if possible, tasty – purpose.   So, since they had been learning the names of different Spanish food items and putting them into sentences,  Mrs Barber thought it would be a good idea to try out ‘la gastronomia Espanola’ .  Judging by the facial expressions, some items were apparently tastier than others!
