Christingle Service

This afternoon our Upper Prep and Lower Prep pupils took part in one of our favourite festivities, our Christingle Service at St Remigius Church. The Reverend Derek McClean led the service, with the children singing songs, making musical contributions and leading the prayers. Once the Christingles were lit and the lights were turned off, everyone circled the church and sang Away in a Manger. It was a wonderful start to the Christmas celebrations. Thank you to all the parents and families who came to share the service, and for your generous contributions for The Children’s Society. If you have any lovely pictures from the Christingle, please send them to marketing@hohs.co.uk.

Christingle Tingles!

This afternoon our Prep and Lower Prep pupils took part in an annual favourite: our Christingle Service at St Remigius Church. The service was led by Rev Derek McClean, with the children offering lovely musical contributions and leading the prayers.  With the lights turned off, Christingles lit and everyone circling the church and joining in with Away in a Manger, there was a magical Christmas atmosphere. Thank you to all the parents and families who came to share the service, and for your generous contributions for The Children’s Society. Look out for a full gallery of pictures over the weekend!

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

Boarders get busy decking the halls…

With December just a few days away, Christmas activities are now officially starting at HOHS!

On Friday evening, our boarders – with a CD of carols playing loudly – got into festive spirit by decorating the huge tree in our main hall.

A big thank you to Norfolk Christmas Trees at Great Melton Estate for once again very kindly donating our trees. Local families looking for a tree for the family? These are top quality – have a look at the website here.
