Aquafit at HOHS

Did you know…?

When our pool is not in use by the school, other carefully-selected groups are able to hire it. Parents may like to know that on Monday mornings, there is a fun Aquafit class here – a great way to get fit! For more information please call Josephine on 07770 845804 (not school Reception, please).

Thanks for collecting!

Thank you to everyone who has been placing Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers in our box in the front hall. We hope to collect a good number, as in previous years, as they can be exchanged for some great items and equipment for sports activities!

The vouchers will be issued in stores until 3rd May so there are still a few weeks to get collecting!  Thank you.

Anyone in Years 7 – 13 is welcome to attend the session on Tuesday. Pupils will have the opportunity to practise their strokes and have one to one tuition with Mrs McEvoy. Pupils who wish to attend regularly will be able to vote on group sessions throughout the year to include sessions on aqua fit, synchronised swimming, water polo and diving.

Thank you

Thank you to everyone who has been placing Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers in our box in the front hall. This year we have collected just over 4,000 vouchers and have placed orders for some new athletics, sports day, swimming and fitness equipment.

Please continue to collect as many vouchers as you can. Thank you to Ms French and Mrs Groves for helping with the counting and posting the vouchers.
