Celebrating achievements at HOHS Speech Day

There was so much to celebrate at our Speech Day today – a lovely day and with perfect weather for the traditional family picnic on the lawns afterwards, too! A truly inspirational speech from guest Jo Cruse who used examples of young women who have become leaders in their field to speak to our girls about their futures ‘bursting with virtually limitless possibility’. She also spoke with candid honesty about the challenges and opportunities that accompany times of change – as she herself faces a crossroads. “I thought it was an amazing speech”, said Amy H (Year 11) “It was as if she was talking directly to me and understood my own thoughts and feelings, I was transfixed!”

Happy holidays, everyone!

Year 6 camp out tonight!

Nursery children watched Year 6 busily putting up their tents in the secure prep playground earlier, ready for their exciting annual camp out this evening. It’s an absolutely glorious afternoon for their barbecue and games in the gardens and we are sure they will have a fabulous time before getting under canvas for a good night’s sleep!

Fabulous Fete!

So many visitors commented on the lovely, friendly atmosphere at our fete today – it really was a wonderful day and,  with the sun shining warmly for most of the time, the last-minute rain didn’t dampen our spirits! Thanks to the PA for organising such a great event, and thanks to all who came – we hope you all had a great time! We think the pictures say it all….

Wanted – holiday homes for Winnie and Bubbles!

A plea from our boarders: would any of our families like to step forward to offer a holiday home for their two guinea pigs over the half term break at the end of May or in the summer holidays? Winnie and Bubbles, our ‘piggies’,  are easy to look after, fun and quite cuddlesome! If you can help, please email boarding@hohs.co.uk as soon as possible.

Year 9 textiles

Last half term our Year 9 girls enjoyed a brief introduction to garment making with Mrs Ling and produced these wrap-over skirts. They have been surprised how important the key skills of accuracy and attention to detail are on even a simple shape.

The Early Years visit Wroxham Barns

Last Thursday the Nursery and Reception children had a fantastic day out at Wroxham Barns.

We all had a wonderful day even though the day was quite chilly! The children learnt all about  the different animals on the farm and the different types of food they eat. They all enjoyed bottle feeding the spring lambs in the barn and seeing the hens, pigs, cows, donkeys, sheep, goats and chickens around the farm.  We also got to  sit on bales of straw in the barn and cuddle the chicks and guinea pigs.

Well done, everyone, for being so well behaved. Happy Easter from us all!
