Thank you Mr Bray!

Michael Bray will be retiring from his post of maintaining our beautiful gardens and grounds at the end of this school year after almost twenty years at the school. He has worked as a gardener and groundsman since leaving school and training in horticulture at the forerunner to Easton College, situated back then in the Norfolk village of North Burlingham.

Before joining HOHS, Mr Bray worked for eighteen years as grounds and gardens supervisor at the large Colmans site at Carrow in Norwich.

“I will miss the school, the gardens and the friendly people here but I won’t be putting my trowel and fork away just yet! Gardening is my favourite pastime as well as my job and I shall be spending a lot more time in my own garden.”

Mr Bray and his wife will also be able to pursue some of their other favourite pastimes including walking and visiting open gardens and National Trust properties.

“I am also looking forward to being able to watch Formula One and have the occasional lie-in without feeling guilty!”, he said.

We all wish Mr Bray every happiness in his retirement when the time comes, and thank him for keeping our grounds so beautiful all these years.

An extra special assembly

On the last day of term the Prep School held one final assembly to say goodbye and thank you to five very special members of staff.

Mrs Thorman, Mrs Halford, Mrs Hall, Mrs Borrer and Mr Borrer were all given a sticker by Mr Peace (as is the custom in assembly!) and then presented with gifts, including a wonderful book filled with self-portraits drawn by each child, from Nursery through to Year 6.

Mr Borrer also received a football themed card and a Brazuca 2014 World Cup football signed by all the children, as a thank you for the hard work he has put in with the Prep School football team and the after school clubs.
