It was full of team spirit and support and a wonderful afternoon – I was so proud of every pupil as they all swam their hearts out – well done! The results were really close but the final score was Town Close 100, HOHS 96

Well done to all the swimmers and thanks to all the parents for your support. The pictures show Year 6 swimmers in their kit!

Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 swimming gala v Town Close School

Last Wednesday our Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 pupils hosted Town Close School for another exciting and enjoyable swimming gala. We won! The final score was

HOHS – 105

Town Close – 95

Warwick and James in Year 6 were magnificent and won every race they were in (James coming first and Warwick very close behind for second place). Caitlin (Year 3) and  Skyla-Grace (Year 5) also both had first and second places across the board.

Other placings included Cristina, Year 6 (first, back crawl), closely followed by Annie, Year 6; Fleur, Year 6, (first, breaststroke), Anna and Cristina, Year 6,  first and second (freestyle), and Years 3 and 6, first (medleys).

Year 6 were on fire but the whole HOHS team swam beautifully and Mrs McEvoy has not named boys or girls of the gala because she is so proud of them all…well done!

Sports results: Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 swimming v Norwich High School

Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 competed at home against the Girls’ High School on Tuesday in a fantastic, roof-raising gala. All pupils in these year groups had been invited to compete this time, so it was a very well attended fixture, with about 30 swimmers from HOHS competingSwimmers and a good crowd of spectators.

It proved a very evenly-matched gala and we achieved some fantastic wins across the board. Everyone held their breath as the final points tally was read out…to discover our ‘A’ team had achieved TOP position by a margin of just one point!

Boy of the Gala is Maxim and Girl of the Gala is Ellie – it was their first time in a gala and I was so proud of them both for overcoming their nerves and swimming magnificently!

Well done to all the swimmers and thanks to all the parents for their support.
