Spring has well and truly arrived on the Hill as this new arrival is keenly displaying! As part of our Animal Club activities we run a weekly dog agility course. As a very rural school we have many staff members with dogs so on Monday afternoon staff lend us their dogs and then pupils and dogs alike proceed to attempt to complete the course. Some are more successful than others (!) but one enterprising little lamb decided to join in with impressive results! Here is a classic example of the old saying – 'you never know what you can do until you try'.
Dog agility is one of the most popular activities which we run here and makes up part of our ever expanding extra-curricular afternoon programme.
Friday evening 16th March.
The annual event for the prestigious "Wojcek Gambaski Trophy" in memory of past KHA editor Peter Johansen, aka Yogi, was held in the school dining room commencing about 7 pm. A meal of chicken curry with naan bread was provided and the sixth form bar was open, see what you missed!.
On Sunday 13 January 2013, former pupils and staff returned to the Hill to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the opening of Plymouth House.
Places are still available for lunch on Sunday 13th January. Shake off the January blues by joining friends old and new on the Hill to celebrate the spirit of Plymouth House over the last 120 years!
The headline is a quote from a number of the rugby coaching staff as they watched the Sheffield senior team win the coveted inter-house rugby trophy for this year. The boys had spent many practice sessions reminding themselves of the tactical differences between Sevens and the 15 man game they had been playing all term.
The forecast for the day was 'cloudy but dry', and when John, Eileen and I arrived at KHS about 9.50, it certainly was that. John and I went up to our archive room where we met James and Margaret Woolliams, Alex and Katrina Mathers, Simon Briggs and John Hughes. Tony and Julie soon joined us.
I had left the mission organisation Open Doors in January 1983 and had taken a series of temporary teaching posts when I applied to the advert placed in TES for a post at the school, as a replacement for Bill. So with no experience of independent education and cause of much consternation in the common room of the comprehensive I was teaching at, I migrated from South Wales with Ros, Philip, and with Natasha not quite with us, we arrived at the school in the August 1983
Closing Date for Bookings is the 19th September
Old Boys, Girls, Teachers and Staff are invited to join with us on this special day to remember the Rohilla, and those tragically lost all those years ago; by annually holding this reunion on the last Sunday each September on 'Rohilla Day'.
The day is not just for people who actually remember those who were lost it is also for any former student or member of staff from our unique club, 'those who lived or worked at the school', an opportunity to meet or reunite.
