At HOHS you’re never too young for hockey!

We had a great half term of hockey for all ages as you may have read in Miss Mickleburgh’s hockey report. Here are Year 2 in full kit having a lesson towards the end of term in the sports hall, and getting ready to go to an away fixture. They have really enjoyed their hockey lessons, learning dribbling, passing, tackling and shooting skills as well as playing games and learning the rules. Well done, everyone!

There was also a presentation of red wristbands to every one of our super mini tennis players, as part of the Lawn Tennis Association Mini Tennis Rally Awards Scheme.

I look forward to seeing you all next term. Have a wonderful Christmas.

Why our pupils aren’t to be messed with

HOHS pupils have been learning Taekwondo this term.

This Korean martial art combines combat techniques, self-defense, sport, exercise, and in some cases meditation and philosophy. In Korean, tae (태, ) means “to strike or break with foot”; kwon (권, ) means “to strike or break with fist”; and do (도, ) means “way”, “method”, or “path”.

Thus, taekwondo may be loosely translated as “the way of the hand and the foot.”
