Junior House Christmas Party. Last Friday, Junior House held their Christmas Party in the hall and the excitement was off the scale. We played Pass the Parcel and Musical Statues and then, a very, very special visitor came to see us. We could not believe our eyes – we nearly fainted! Santa Claus really is coming to town………..

DT Enrichment Day

P1240436

Last Monday, Seaton House held a DT Enrichment Day. We brought in shoe boxes to make our own diorama – a scene – in 3D! We each carefully planned our diorama, then we created them using many different materials: paint, coloured pens, wool, fabric and lots more. Our imaginations ran riot as we created underwater scenes and voyages to outer space! We then evaluated our work. As you can see, the results were spectacular. Thank you Mrs Baker for organising such an amazing, creative day.

Prickly Hay – Junior House Nativity Play

Junior House Nativity

If we weren’t feeling Christmassy before, we certainly are now! This morning, Junior House performed Prickly Hay, the dress rehearsal of their Christmas Nativity and it was so beautiful it made us cry. Parents who have not seen it yet are in for a treat next week. The message of the play was simple – it doesn’t matter who we are or what we do – we are all important and we all count. The girls gave a fantastic performance. Their acting ability and their talent for music was so apparent – we are sure we have one or two future Oscar winners in our midst. Thank you to Miss Goodsell, Mrs Cooper, Mrs Simpson and Mrs Budgett for organising such a lovely, heartwarming Christmas play.

Seaton House Winter Wonderland Fair

Christmas has arrived here at Seaton House! Our lovely Winter Wonderland Fair on Saturday has put us all firmly into the Christmas Spirit. Our wonderful POSH team worked tirelessly to transform the cabin into Santa’s Grotto and the school hall into a Winter Wonderland of stalls selling lovely Christmas fayre. There were donkeys for the children to ride, a Grand Raffle and a Christmas Bake-Off, judged by our very own Mrs Morrison and Mrs Evans, Chair of Governors! Very well done to the winners and to all our bakers whose cakes were hugely appreciated in the refreshments room. Thank you so much to POSH and SHS staff who turned up, pitched in and helped to make the day a huge success.

Science Day

Today was Science Day at Seaton House. We donned our virtual reality goggles and flew to Mars and Jupiter. We made our own stars, we did Space Coding with Scratch and we learned how to apply to fly to the moon. We all want to be astronauts! Thank you Mrs Brooks for organising such an inspirational and super-cosmic day!

The girls performed a set routine on a strip of mats in front of lots of parents, siblings and grandparents! All the girls showed fantastic skills and courage and Seaton House won the competition overall. Congratulations girls! Very well done.

Children in Need Assembly

Thank you everyone for contributing so generously to our children in Need Appeal today. All of our pupils and staff wore something spotty to help fundraise for this fantastic cause. We raised at least £140 with, hopefully, more to come. Recently, we ran a competition for fundraising ideas and the winning girls held a whole school assembly this morning The girls’ ideas for helping children in need were inspirational, ranging from making breakfast for their parents to holding raffles and cookie sales to help raise money for children in this country and around the world, who need our help. The girls showed us their Wishing Tree – where they can write their hopes and dreams for others on to a leaf and attach it to the tree. We hope all of the girls’ wishes come true. Thank you to Miss Goodsell and Mrs Cooper for organising this lovely Children in Need Assembly – even Pudsey turned up to show support!

Many congratulations to our FVI netball stars for their wonderful performance this afternoon at the annual Seaton House Gladman Tournament. The girls were fantastic hostesses to their friends from seven other schools and they played superbly, winning four matches, drawing one and losing only two, to come joint second overall. Mrs Morrison was delighted to award our girls their well-deserved silver medals. Congratulations to Aberdour who won the shield. Junior House and Senior House turned out in force to support our girls and we were all so proud of our team. Thank you so much to everyone who helped to organise this event – Mrs Morrison, Mrs Wilson, Mrs Payne, Mrs Ruddock, Mrs Fairweather and Miss Parker. Thanks also to Mrs Hossenbux who almost froze to death keeping score and to our amazing POSH team who kept everyone supplied with tea and cake. What a wonderful afternoon! Well done girls!
