Beautiful Snow Ball!

Yesterday evening the Barn was transformed by hardworking members of our PA into a beautiful winter wonderland for our annual Snow Ball. The senior girls dressed to impress and once again the Mocktail Bar proved a big hit on the night! Many photos were taken and girls are welcome to bring a USB to the marketing office to have them uploaded: here is just a small selection. There will be some more printed out to look through in the Black Hole at school tomorrow – and a gallery on the blog soon.

A huge thank you to our Parents’ Association for helping to fund the evening as well as transforming the barn into such a beautiful wintry venue…

A snow storm, Santa and a selfie or two!

Last night the Barn was once again transformed into a winter wonderland for our annual Snow Ball. Snow-Ball2All dressed to impress and looking beautiful, our senior girls filled the dance floor, made good use of the Mocktail Bar and spent plenty of time both posing in the photo area and perfecting the perfect ‘selfie’! Santa also proved a big hit on the night!

A huge thank you to the ‘decorating crew’ (Mr Armes, Mrs Barrow & Mr Kassulke) who helped me to transform the Barn in just a few short hours. Thanks also to everyone who helped make the snow flakes, Mr Reeves for the lovely food (and the Ho Ho Ho!) and the HOHS staff who helped out on the night.

All the photos from the evening will be appearing on the blog soon…

Dressed to impress at the ‘Snow Ball’

Dressed to impress and ready to party, Years 7, 8 and 9 enjoyed their first-ever Snow Ball at the end of last term.

With the help of some hardworking helpers, the Barn was transformed into a magical winter wonderland, complete with foliage, fairy lights, visiting woodland fauna and plenty of falling snow.

The evening’s entertainment came in the form ‘DJ Dom’, who was on hand to keep the girls moving on the dance floor. Mrs Collins and Mrs Crump ran the highly popular ‘Mocktail’ bar and everyone enjoyed a selection of savory and sweet canapés. Father Christmas even stopped by to drop off some early presents.

Unsurprisingly the Narnia-themed photo area proved a huge draw for all the girls, even those who claimed they were far too shy to step in front of the camera!

A huge thank you to the PA for making the evening possible, and to all PA members who spent countless hours making snowflakes and helping transform the Barn on the day. Thanks also to the staff (and Father Christmas) who helped make the evening such a resounding success.

PHOTOS taken on the evening can be seen here: Snow-Ball38
