OBH has got Talent, Harvest Festival at Brettenham Church, Team Challenge

News from the Boarding House……

On Saturday night many of the children took to the stage for OBH Has Got Talent. There was a variety of acts and many chose to dance, sing, play musical instruments, act impressions and telling jokes.  It was a trio of girls called “3, 2, 1, Go” all the way from Spain that impressed our panel of judges which included “Sir Tom Jones”, “Mr Simon Cowell” and “Cheryl Fernandez-Fersini” with their choreographed dance to Cheerleader by OMI. Congratulations Liliana, Alejandra and Carla (and Ines who helped to choreograph it).   Thanks need to go to our hosts and our judges and especially Mr Dunham for the amazing staging, lights and sound system organisation. Lots of the children were super helpful disassembling the stage later on Sunday which was appreciated by all the staff.
Sunday morning was a visit to Brettenham Church for the Harvest Festival where the children sang and performed the readings beautifully. Many parents and grandparents popped back for coffee and tea and it was lovely to see you all. Thank you to everyone for all the Harvest festival donations received which have been given to Stowmarket Foodbank.
On Sunday afternoon Mr Miller organised a game of Capture the Flag and several games of Manhunt with Mr Dunham and Mrs Cubitt.  The pupils were all suitably exhausted and then had some down-time in the evening.  Those who still had energy played Dodgeball!
On Monday night it was a trip out for dinner for the winners of the Dorm competition.  Maud and Pankhurst won this rather lovely treat and it was a pleasure to take you all to the Sudbury Pizza Express. My pizza was rather yummy and the comments on the return journey echoed this.  Thank you Pizza Express Sudbury!
We are looking forward to a restful half term and hope you all have a great break.

 

We look forward to seeing many of you at the OBH Bonfire and Firework event on Saturday 7th November.
