Summer Fete: see you all tomorrow!

Our beautiful gardens have been a hive of activity this morning as tents go up, barbecues are positioned and other essential preparations take place for tomorrow’s HOHS Summer Fete. Meanwhile, Miss Hopwood has been working hard at lunchtimes all week with the children who will be performing Maypole dances, making sure they perfect their skipping and ribbon-weaving moves!

With entertainers, fairground rides, tea-and-cake tent, inflatables, games, barbecue, treasure hunt and stalls galore, this is a fun event for all the family. And don’t miss out on our grand raffle  – there are some amazing prizes including two brand new bikes, signed items from Norwich City FC and many more. Tickets will be on sale on the day.

Entry to the fete is free – look forward to seeing you there!

Need to buy new uniform – or got some to sell?

A reminder that the PA Uniform Shop will be open all day tomorrow, Thursday 8th December.

If you have any unwanted or outgrown uniform taking up valuable wardrobe space at home, why not drop it into the Uniform Shop and let us sell it for you. You will receive 50% of the selling price, with the other 50% going to the Parents’ Association to fund extras for pupils throughout the school.

All items should be clean and in wearable/usable condition and have a completed label attached to them;  these labels are available from the school office.
