Our ‘stars’ this week were…

Star-of-week

Our most recent ‘Stars’, receiving special mention by Mr Peace in this morning’s Prep Department Praise Assembly, are:

Vera C-M (Nursery), for her listening and understanding in class and for being thoughtful. Vera is doing well with being a good friend.

Grace T (Nursery), for very good improvement with her reading – Grace has gone up a level.

Noah H (Year 1), for always working hard and persevering. Noah has gone up in his reading and is doing very well with his handwriting.

Evelyn B (Year 2), for excellent participation in play rehearsals. Evelyn really gets into her character and knows all of her lines thoroughly.

Well done to all of these ‘stars’! Who will it be next week?

Governors’ reception this Thursday

Our school governors’ coffee & mince pies event at 4pm this Thursday,  7th December will be taking place in the Quiet Room instead of The Barn.  We hope to see as many of our parents as possible. Pictured below is Chair of the governors Martin Matthews at a previous event.

  • The governors’ role “Our governors add an extra dimension to the expertise available in the running of the school. Governors bring outside skills to the educational setting, offer support and advice and also help shape future strategy. We are lucky at HOHS to have governors who not only have an interest in the school but also bring strong experience from their various professional backgrounds. It is about enhancing the spread of experience available to the school.” Stephen Crump, Headmaster

Medal haul for Caitlin

Earlier this month Caitlin (Year 5) scooped an impressive SEVEN medals at a swimming competition at UEA Sportspark. Caitlin, who trains six times weekly for UEA City of Norwich Swimming Club, competed against swimmers up to three years older from a total of seven swimming clubs. Her haul included two gold medals (50m and 200m backstroke), two silvers (100m breaststroke and 100m backstroke) and three bronze! Very well done, Caitlin!

Winter Wonderland thank yous

Is it really almost a week ago? A huge thank you to everyone who helped, donated raffle prizes, baked cakes, helped set up and clear away, took a stall or just came to support our Winter Wonderland Fair last Saturday. It was much appreciated!

The whole event was relaxed and enjoyable and in terms of fundraising was a big success, with takings of over £2100 before expenses, so it will be a big boost for PA funds. Most of our 50+ stallholders had a good day and are keen to come to our summer fete next May.

We hope you all enjoyed this event as much as we did – and thanks again! More pictures of the Fair were on the blog last weekend.

Joy Elsley, PA Chair
