Can you design the winning leaping hare?

Don’t forget to get creative over half term with your design for our leaping leveret, part of the GoGO Hares project! Miss Coughlan has distributed templates to every pupil in Nursery and Prep and Years 7-10 and we’d like as many entries as possible…be as colourful and imaginative as you like! The closing date is Monday 19th February – the day we get back after half term – and the designs will be on display in the main entrance hall for everyone to vote for their favourite!  The winning design will be painted onto our three-foot high hare (you can sign up to help!) ready to join over 100 from other schools as part of the trail around Norwich this summer. Find out more about the GoGo Hares project here!

Visit our Go Go Dragon in Pottergate!

Dragon-finishedOur beautiful GoGO Dragon, Grace, has now been installed in The Good Earth Clothing Company shop in Pottergate in the Norwich Lanes. This family-run business specialises in ladies’ and men’s clothing made from natural fabrics including cotton, linen, silk and hemp.

Owner Richard Harvey lives in Hethersett and specially requested our dragon as his daughter, now an accountant living in the Cotswolds, is a former pupil of the school.

A warm welcome awaits any HOHS family who visit the shop to see our dragon and have a browse!
