Visit our Go Go Dragon in Pottergate!

Dragon-finishedOur beautiful GoGO Dragon, Grace, has now been installed in The Good Earth Clothing Company shop in Pottergate in the Norwich Lanes. This family-run business specialises in ladies’ and men’s clothing made from natural fabrics including cotton, linen, silk and hemp.

Owner Richard Harvey lives in Hethersett and specially requested our dragon as his daughter, now an accountant living in the Cotswolds, is a former pupil of the school.

A warm welcome awaits any HOHS family who visit the shop to see our dragon and have a browse!

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.
