Beautiful Snow Ball!

Yesterday evening the Barn was transformed by hardworking members of our PA into a beautiful winter wonderland for our annual Snow Ball. The senior girls dressed to impress and once again the Mocktail Bar proved a big hit on the night! Many photos were taken and girls are welcome to bring a USB to the marketing office to have them uploaded: here is just a small selection. There will be some more printed out to look through in the Black Hole at school tomorrow – and a gallery on the blog soon.

A huge thank you to our Parents’ Association for helping to fund the evening as well as transforming the barn into such a beautiful wintry venue…

Dressed to impress at the Snow Ball

On Wednesday evening the Barn was transformed into a winter wonderland for our annual Snow Ball. Dressed to impress and looking beautiful, girls from Years 7-11 filled the dance floor, made good use of the mocktail bar and spent plenty of time posing against our snowy backdrop!

A huge thank you to the PA team who worked their magic decorating the Barn, to Mr Reeves for the lovely food, to Mr Crump for taking on the role of photographer for the evening and to Mrs Collin, Mrs Crump and Mrs Heppell, who helped to make the evening such a success.

See a selection of photos from the event here and keep an eye on the blog as more will be posted later!

Traditional Carol Service fills St Remigius…

IMG_7706

St Remigius parish church was filled with family and friends of HOHS this afternoon for our carol service, led by Reverend Derek McClean. Head Girl, Deputy Head Girl and Senior Boarder Alex, Emily-Jayne and Shannon led the procession to the choir stalls for the traditional carols and readings, which were interspersed with some musical delights from our choirs and musicians. A particular highlight was the first public performance of “To Bethlehem”, a beautiful and deceptively simple carol written by Warwick, Henry and Stella from Year 6 and Ruby from Year 5. Mrs Richards conducted the Upper Prep Choir and they were accompanied on piano by Warwick and Henry. The poignant “Mary, did you know?”,  sung by Tamikani from Year 12 and Bridget, Karen and Hannah from Year 13, was also a stand-out item,  while all the girls who did readings and led prayers spoke clearly and with great expression.
