Once again it has been a busy week. On Saturday evening the boarders made and cooked their own burgers in the outdoor classroom, washed down with cookies and hot chocolate. To round the evening off everyone played a wide game in the dark then it was up to bed, tired and smelling of wood smoke.
Sunday the sun was out and after church we headed to Southwold for a fish and chip lunch then to the beach to con-struct some mighty sand sculptures. These ranged from lost villages, environmentally friendly dams blockading villages, Formula 1 cars and castles galore which were all much admired by the passers-by who were fascinated by what they saw. The winning sculpture that stole most of the attention was the mermaid family.
The girls enjoyed a House supper in the Drawing Room on Tuesday evening where it was lovely to see all of them enjoying pizza, chips and yummy cupcakes.
The boys’ house will be enjoying hot chocolate and treats next week and will be chatting about their experiences of boarding with each other.
Dorm prizes for the last fortnight went to Sharman in the Girls’ House and Kedington in the Boys’ House. All in each dormitory have enjoyed treats at supper on Thursday evening and those who were not boarding were able to consume theirs on Friday morning if necessary.
And in Spero…
Our favourite activity this week has been reading jokes to each other. There has been much hilarity and our favourites include, what is black and white and green? A snotty Zebra!! And what do you get if you pour boiling water down a rabbit hole? Hot cross bunnies!!
This fortnight’s dorm winners were the girls in Knyvett. Their treat was a special supper upstairs in the common room. It was greatly enjoyed by all.
Towards the end of next week we are looking forward to wel-coming our visitors from the ‘Oscar Foundation’ who have been touring the country, playing football and viewing historic buildings and places along the way.
Next Saturday evening will give the boarders and their guests a chance to strut their stuff on the dance floor, Bollywood style! Then Sunday will bring an epic match as the tourists will show more fancy footwork on the football pitch. All OBH families are welcome to come and support, the match starts at 11.30 am.
Enjoy the weekend!
We are really looking forward to the arrival of the OSCAR Foundation football team to OBH for the Suffolk leg of their tour of UK Schools. By the time they reach OBH they will have played matches against Beaudesert, Cheltenham College, Hall Grove and Aldro. Visited Chelsea Football ground, Windsor Great Park, seen The Lion King in the West End and been on the London Eye.
At OBH they will be treated to a night of boarding activities on Saturday night with our boarders, Football training with former ITFC player Alan Lee and some ITFC youth players, a match against the OBH U13 team and spend time in the outdoor classroom, rounding off the weekend with a camp fire.
Families are welcome to come and watch the Football match on Sunday, 11.30am – 12.30pm.
