School House News

by Matthew Markham

Welcome to the first School House news for 2020. We have had an excellent start to the year with the Year 9 boys starting extremely well. As always, we had a few tears from both boys and mothers at the conclusion of the parents dinner, when parents leave their boys at the hostel for the first time. Shortly after, the boys were in high spirits playing games with the Year 13’s.

OBHS Karate Class

by Lee Hart

Okinawa is the birth place of all Karate. Over the years, various styles and focuses have evolved but the styles in Okinawa remain true to the essence of what Karate is. The Karate class at OBHS is designed to introduce traditional Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate to students which is so much more than self-defence!
