A most notable occasion!

Where can you rub shoulders with the likes of Anne Frank, Messi, Madonna, Serena Williams, Darcey Bussell, Alan Sugar and Adele all under one roof? At HOHS, that’s where! Last Friday our Year 9 girls presented a fascinating ‘Meet the Notables’ event in the music room. Each girl had chosen a notable person from history or the current day, researched them and embodied them for the afternoon, answering visitors’ questions about their lives.

A very notable night indeed!

Yesterday saw Nadia Comaneci and Angelina Jolie rubbing shoulders with Nelson Mandela, Vera Rubin, Mahatma Gandhi, Judy Garland,  Alan Turing and a host of other notable figures from times gone by and the present day, as our Year 9 presented a memorable Night of the Notables 2016.

All the girls had worked hard since September researching their chosen notable and the final resulting display was really fascinating and very impressive!  Parents and friends visiting the Barn during the evening had the opportunity to find out about the notables from the girls, who were dressed in character and ready to answer questions beside their individual displays.

 The full list of notables  and pictures from the event are here.
