Reindeer at HOHS this Saturday!

We are all looking forward to our special event on Saturday! As the run-up to Christmas starts,  Santa and his REAL reindeer, plus a couple of hardworking elves, will be at HOHS to meet the children and distribute some early Christmas presents. There will also be tasty hot food and drinks on sale, plus craft activities for the children to enjoy: making angels, decorating seasonal cookies, making paper chains and more.

We hope to see many of you there – and do bring friends and extended family, too. Please let us know who’s coming, though, so that Santa brings the right presents – just email reception@hohs.co.uk with your numbers and the ages of the children, or call in to the school reception. Please note that you must accompany your children throughout the event.

Bonfire party goes with a bang!

As the sun set over the field yesterday,  members of our PA were busy getting everything ready for our bonfire and fireworks party.  It was great fun for all the families and friends who attended and a lovely, social occasion, with Mr Crump’s fireworks display providing just the right  ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’  factor!  

Many thanks to Mr Reeves and the kitchen team for dishing up such tasty soup and hotdogs, and to the PA team for organising and selling the food, drinks and ever-popular glo-sticks.  Funds raised will go into the PA kitty to provide items the children may not otherwise have to enhance their school experience.
