And so, as term draws to a close, we hold our last, whole school Celebration Assembly for Form VI, who make us laugh and cry as they tell funny stories and act out skits of hilarious things that have happened during their time here at Seaton House. Goodbye girls and good luck. Have a wonderful Summer break everyone.
This afternoon, Reception Class invited parents to our special assembly, a lovely, joyful celebration of all the wonderful things we have done during this academic year. We song lots of songs – some in French! – and we really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you to all our parents who came to watch us. Happy holidays!
On Saturday 23rd June, we held our annual Summer Fete. Thanks to POSH, who worked tirelessly to transform our field into a scene from the Wild West, we dressed up as cowboys – and girls! – we rode on the bucking bronco, we explored the visiting fire engine and learned what it is like to be a firefighter, we held a bake-off competition and we demonstrated our gymnastic and musical theatre skills. It was a wonderful afternoon and the weather was perfect. Thank you so much to all our parents and to the staff at Seaton House who worked so hard to put on such a fantastic afternoon.
This morning, Junior House held their annual Sports Day on the field. The weather was perfect. We had so much fun on space hoppers, sack racing, sprinting and doing obstacle races. Thank you so much to Miss Parker for organising such a fun-filled and exciting event, to all the staff who came to help, to all the parents who came to cheer us on and to our FVI girls who helped to look after the JH little ones throughout the morning.
Seaton House has been fundraising for Sport Relief all this week this week and have participated in some fun activities: hula hooping, skipping, Boogie Thursday and Footie Friday. FIII – FV also took part in today’s Sport Relief Challenge at the swimming pool. They participated in wiggle races and hunting for sinkies and loose change and using the floating mats! Great fun, for a fantastic cause. Thank you to everyone who has supported our fundraising activities this week.
Today was DT Day. We were engineers – we learned to build pyramids and how to make a marble run. We built structures with straws and made bridges and cake stands. We faced cardboard box challenges and enjoyed learning how to successfully package chocolates. It was a wonderful day. Thank you Mrs Baker.
We did it! We have smashed this year’s target £2,018 and have raised an incredible £3,079, with more pledges to come. Thank you so much to parents, family and friends who have donated to this worthwhile cause and left those vital messages of support for our girls. Every pupil, from Lower Nursery to FVI, has participated in this event to help raise money to beat cancer. The rain did not dampen our spirits as we walked together to the Royal Marsden Hospital. Every penny, every small step counts. Thank you to every pupil for participating and to all the parents who turned out to help this morning and accompanied us on our march and to the staff who coordinated this amazing event. Thank you everyone.
