HOHS winners at the Royal Norfolk Show again!

We are proud to announce that, yet again, our pupils have scooped awards in the prestigious Royal Norfolk Show schools art competition, which this year received over 600 entries from across the county.

Congratulations to Matthias S (Year 1) and Isabella W (Year 6). Matthias was Runner-Up in Key Stage 1 and Izzy was Highly Commended in the Upper Key Stage Two category. The awards will be presented at 11.30 on Thursday 28th June in the Discovery Zone at the Show, where selected artwork from many Norfolk schools will be on display. Matthias won £25 for the school as runner up and the children also won two free adult tickets and a free car parking pass each, so that they and their parents can attend the awards ceremony.

• HOHS will be at the Royal Norfolk Show on 27th and 28th June – if you are going, do drop in for light refreshments and a chat! Find us on Stand 6 (near the Dereham Gate)

Our ‘stars’ of the week

Our ‘stars’ of the week, receiving special mention in assembly yesterday, were:

Edward B (Nursery), for being kind and thoughtful during a swimming lesson. Edward helped his class mates jump in the pool!

Grace T (Reception), for being a kind friend to everyone in the class.  Grace tries hard in everything including reading, writing and maths.

Charlie McN (Year 1) for being kind and compassionate when thinking about looking after our planet. Charlie produced an excellent poster on caring for the environment.

Evelyn B (Year 2) for an amazing circus poem produced during the holidays. She demonstrated wonderful use of language and words.

Well done, everyone.  Who will it be next week?
