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.

The U16 hockey team played on Thursday afternoon verses two teams of varying age groups from Norwich High School for Girls. It was a lovely afternoon of hockey played in the spirit of fair play and skill development. Sophie B was awarded the player of the match by the opposition and will captain the next game. Goals were scored today by Isabel, Rebekah and Sophie B and overall our girls were victorious!

Albert and Oliver in Rugby Finals!

We would like to congratulate to Albert and Oliver in Year 5 for their success with their rugby team last weekend. The team they play for, the U10 team at Crusaders Rugby Club, Little Melton, played at Diss on Sunday in a regional Prima Cup competition. They won all their games which were scored on both sportsmanship and the core values of rugby. As a result, the team got through to the finals at Welford Road, the Leicester Tigers’ ground.

The finals are on March 2
nd and both the boys and the team are excited to be playing on the same pitch as their rugby heroes, in front of 1000s of people, and representing the region in the competition.

Well done, Albert and Oliver! We look forward to hearing how you and your team do in the finals.

Give Rugby a Try!

If any girls aged 13 or over are interested in giving rugby a try (pun intended!) please see the poster below for information. Mrs Mann is the ladies’ team coach and Olivia, one of our Gap Year Assistants, is a regular team member so, if you’re not sure if rugby is for you, you can always ask one of them about it first.
