E-Safety Day

We are holding an e-Safety Day on Monday 25th September. Nathan Simmonds, Online Safety Trainer for Suffolk County Council, will be visiting us and meeting with the children. Additionally, there will be a session for all parents both in Prep & Pre-Prep in the Britten Hall at 5.00pm – we urge you to attend as he is an excellent speaker on this most important of topics. Please email if you will be attending.

Waterslide/Knockout Pool Party & BBQ, Tricky TrikeRunDive

Welcome back to Boarding at OBH, we hope you all have had a fabulous summer holiday. The weather has been kind and the boarders have been able to play outside in Rory’s place, play on the astro and use their bikes during the pleasant evenings we have experienced so far.

On Saturday night the boarders were greeted by a HUGE inflatable construction which had them all slip-sliding away whilst being soaked with water. It was great to see all ages enjoying the thrills and spills as they launched themselves off the top. It was just warm enough for a delicious BBQ in between the wet ‘n’ wild activity. Ice cream and hot chocolate was then consumed with delight before relaxing with games of charades in the inner hall with Madame Cubitt.

On Sunday, we attended Thorpe Morieux church for Holy Communion before returning for morning coffee. After lunch the It’s a Knockout Team Challenge saw the boys and girls complete
obstacle courses, zip down the wire, and navigate Rory’s Place. The Wasps, The Wolves and the Vodafone Slolphins worked superbly in their teams and gained their well-deserved rewards.

Thank you to all the children and staff for a wonderful weekend which was completed with tuck and a movie. Next week we look forward to ‘EatLive!’ followed by ‘Southwold Sand Statues’ – bring your buckets and spades.

The Junior Boarding House has now formally opened as SPERO.

The Junior Boarding House has now formally opened as SPERO. Spero, taken from the school’s motto, meaning ‘I Hope’. Hope conjures up ideas of aspiration and ambition; all highly desirable qualities to inspire the youngest members of OBH’s boarding community. Our new house has provided great excitement over the first couple of weeks, with both the boys and girls discovering
exciting new dormitories and a lovely bright, vibrant common room. The inaugural night saw 10 happy boarders snug in their comfy new beds.
