Farewell to Michael Reeves

After 28 years looking after our school (and cooking for us for many of them, too!),  Michael Reeves is leaving us in June to pursue a life of leisure in his native, beloved Ireland. Many parents, past pupils and friends of the school will know Mr Reeves as a lynchpin of school life at HOHS, an extraordinarily resourceful, practical and helpful ‘Mr Fixit’. Over his tenure here he has also ably managed all of our commercial lettings, for organisations who hire our wonderful swimming pool, sports hall and other facilities when not in school use.

If you would like to show appreciation for Mr Reeves’ hard work and dedication, please send or bring donations to school Reception before 25th May (end of half term). Mr Reeves’ last day in school will be Friday 8th June.

King’s Camps first week success!

The first week of activity camps at HOHS provided by kingscamps.org is just drawing to a close in the sports hall this afternoon, and has been a great success!  Manager Ryan and his team of coaches Emily, Dom, Dan and Megan have kept nearly 40 children from HOHS and other schools locally active all week with a range of exciting games, sports and active play. Safeguarding means we couldn’t take pictures while the  sessions were in progress, but Agata, Vera, Alfie and Matthias were very happy to be pictured with their coaches. Alfie’s mum told us, “It has been absolutely amazing, Alfie has really enjoyed every minute and we will definitely be signing up for the summer sessions!” Agata said, “It is really fun, we love it!”

The next sessions will be in the summer holidays,  in the weeks beginning July 30th and August 6th.  To book, go to the Hethersett Old Hall page of the Kings Camps website here.
