Form IV had a wonderful time in Bowles, despite the rain and mud! We learned to work as a team, to support one other on the low ropes, we learned how to ski and we went rock climbing. We practised our archery skills and went sledging and pool kayaking. We learned to read a map during orienteering skills and, in the evenings, we had great fun toasting marshmallows around the campfire. Thank you so much to Mrs Mason and to Mrs Hammond for such a fantastic week!
Very well done indeed to our Form VI girls who hosted our annual Gladman Tournament earlier this week. We were delighted that our guest of honour, Mrs Gladman, could come back to see us and to present the trophy. Our team played exceptionally well and fought hard on court, finishing fourth overall. Thank you to our Form VI girls who were such wonderful hosts, to Mrs White for organising such a fantastic afternoon and to all our families and friends who came to cheer us on.
As part of our Harvest Festival celebrations, Form VI put on a very entertaining concert for the rest of the school. Well done girls – what a fantastic start to the weekend!
On Friday 27th September, we held our annual Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research. Thank you to all of our families and friends who baked cakes and then came along to our coffee morning to support us. We raised an amazing £675.13. Thank you everyone.
Our Hawaiian Luau on Saturday 21st June was a roaring success and the weather was perfect. Thank you so much to all the POSH ladies for organising this spectacular event and to all of our Seaton House families and friends for coming along to enjoy the afternoon.
On Friday 14th June, our Senior House girls and their families and friends attended Sports Day at the David Weir Centre in Carshalton. We braved the wind and rain at times, but mostly the weather was on our side and the sun came out for our picnic. We spent a wonderful afternoon doing hurdles, track racing, relays and we had fun sack racing and carrying an egg on a spoon — which is far more difficult than it looks! We cheered our mums and dads during their races and we loved receiving our medals at the end. to all of our parents for coming to support us – some for the very last time! – and to Mrs White, Miss Parker and all Seaton House staff for organising this lovely Sports Day , which we will remember for years to come.
Pupils in Forms III, IV, V & VI spent a wonderful day visiting The Lookout Discovery Centre and Go Ape in Bracknell. The girls enjoyed hands-on science experience with lots of activities which were all great fun. They went on the Tree Top Adventure at Go Ape which included intricate crossings, wobbly bridges and a zip wire finale! The girls had a wonderful day and it was definitely a fun and memorable way to end this busy half term. Thank you to all the staff — the girls really appreciated the encouragement!
Form III have had the most amazing time at Bowles, on their residential trip. Thank you so much to Mrs Morrison, Mrs Baker and to Miss Morrison for taking us and for making this whole trip such fun. We have all tried things we never thought we could do: we have been orienteering, rope climbing, kayaking and skiing! We have had a wonderful time.
Yesterday, all of our pupils from FI — FVI tried their hand at Maypole Dancing and we found that it is much, much more complicated than it looks! We had a lovely time as we wound the ribbons into a perfect pattern and then unwound them again to finish the dance exactly where we started. Thank you so much to Mrs Baker for organising this fantastic day and thank you to Abigail Stopher from The Education Group for your endless patience as you worked with us to show us how to do it. Here are Form V, showing us how it’s done.
