At the end of the autumn term, the HIPE teams ran a phenomenal 20-Chanukah events across both schools in a space of five short days, in addition to their regular daily sessions.
The special surprise was a real climax for the week: DNA- otherwise known as Darren and Andrew- a pair of Britain’s Got Talent finalists who entertained the entire school in carefully regulated bubbled slots. Their mind reading acts gripped the students. As excited as the students were to enjoy watching and participating in the acts, the two performers were thrilled to have the chance to perform in front of a live audience.
The fact that HIPE could do so much in such a short space of time with all the Covid restrictions was our own Hasmonean Chanukah miracle!
