The future starts here…

Year 12 will be attending the  Norfolk Higher Education Exhibition at UEA tomorrow.  With UCAS experts, university and college representatives from over 100 institutions and industry professionals present, it gives the girls a great opportunity to learn about the many possibilities open to them after their A levels.  They will be able to attend seminars on how to choose a university and find out what life is like on a university campus as well as talk to experts about options other than going to university.

Watch this space for pictures and the girls’ feedback from the event!

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?

Match report: U14 rounders v Hellesdon High School

Our U14 rounders team travelled over to Hellesdon High School for a very sunny but windy afternoon of rounders yesterday. During this fixture, I saw excellent fielding that prevented the opposition from scoring highly against us. Well done to Ashlyn G for using her long-barrier to good effect! I am pleased to report that we won by a margin of three-and-a-half rounders.  Player of the Match award went to Mia D, as nominated by the opposition –  most likely for scoring six rounders! Congratulations to everyone.

Mrs Woods
Head of P.E.

HOHS gains Bronze Eco-School Status

We recently reported how Year 12 student Maisie A  has been working to earn the school a bronze Eco-Schools award. We are pleased to announce that this status has now been achieved. Well done, Maisie! In her own words, here’s how she did it, with the help of staff and pupils:

“To reach the bronze award we had to complete three simple steps: form an eco-committee, undertake an environmental review and complete an action plan. Since then, we have begun to make changes in school. So far we have placed recycling bins in classrooms and have put up signs to remind both pupils and teachers to turn lights and computers off when no one is in the room. I have also produced an eco-notice board to display the action plan and environmental review – you can see it on the stairs just outside the library.”

The next stage on Maisie’s Mission is to complete the silver award. More of this later!
