Can you design the winning dragon?

Gorilla15Remember Go Go Gorilla? Well this year we will be participating in Go Go Dragon!

We will need to design and paint our own 3 foot tall dragon and then give it a name. When it is finished it will form part of a trail alongside all of the other school entries around Norwich this summer. You will be able to choose your favourite design and help to paint the dragon.

STEP 1: Design a dragon
All year groups are invited to submit designs using the template provided. Please hand your design into your form tutor. Deadline for entries is on the first day back after half term, Mon 23rd February 2015

4_GoGoDragons_Logo_SchoolSTEP 2: Selecting the winning design
The designs you have submitted will be displayed after half term. You will be asked to vote for your favourite and the winning design will then be made based on your choices.

STEP 3: Painting the dragon
This will be done at lunchtimes and during some after school sessions. We will need a team of people to help. You will be able to sign up closer to the time.

GoGoDragons! 2015

4_GoGoDragons_Logo_SchoolFollowing on from the success of GoGoGorillas in 2013, Norwich is once again set to become overrun with a blaze of fire-breathing GoGoDragons in 2015!

This new interactive arts sculpture trail will see around 80 large painted sculptures and up to 100 mini school dragons dotted around the shops and city streets.

We look forward to taking delivery of our very own HOHS mini dragon soon…

It’s time to go go ape!

Go-Go-Gorillas-Sponsorship-Pack-1-200x200

Don’t be too surprised if you happen across a troop of brightly coloured gorillas in Norwich’s streets, parks and open spaces this summer.

Following on from the success of the Go Elephant event a few years ago, local schools, community groups and professional artists have once again been invited to decorate their own sculpture as part of Go Go Gorilla.

These exciting and original artworks will be displayed for 10 weeks in a trail around town, before being auctioned off to raise money for the Break and Born Free Foundation charities.

HOHS will be creating our very own gorilla to join the display. So for any seniors who wish to take part in painting the gorilla, there is a template available (either from myself or the front office) on which to complete a design.

All designs must be handed in by Friday 3rd May.
