Seaton House Mini Marsden March

We did it! We didn’t just reach our target — we smashed it.— raising a staggering £2,725! This afternoon, in memory of Mrs Sallie Lunn, a much loved teacher at this school, every single one of us walked from Seaton House to the Royal Marsden Hospital to raise vital funds to help beat cancer. Thank you so much to all our parents, staff and pupils for supporting us today. Huge thanks to Mrs Hossenbux and to our amazing POSH team for organising this wonderful event. There is still time to donate — please click on the link below to push our total even higher.

Form VI Poetry Competition

Today, Form VI showed their mettle and each gave a unique performance of their chosen poem. The standard was incredibly high, with poems of various lengths and complexity and memorable moments from each and every delivery. Words stood in the air, rhymes and rhythms chimed and the afternoon was a real celebration of what pupils can achieve when they put their minds to it. Congratulations to all of them. Many thanks to Liz Williams who kindly adjudicated.

Form V Take Part in Purley Swimathon

Very well done to our amazing team of FV swimmers who, between them, managed to swim a staggering 134 lengths – 3,350 metres – during the Purley Rotary Swimathon last Saturday. This means that each girl swam at least 558 metres. Half way through the 55 minute swim the girls felt tired and their ears hurt but did they stop? No, they actually picked up the pace and swam even faster to raise money for charity. Well done girls – you all showed true Seaton House Spirit and we are very proud of you.

World Book Day

On Thursday, we celebrated World Book Day. Each class was designated an author and we dressed as our favourite characters from our chosen books. We participated in lots of activities and held a whole school assembly at the end of the day to showcase everything we had learned. Huge thanks to Mrs Riddick for organising such a wonderful day and also to Nick and Hannah from Love Theatre Arts who created mini productions for each class to perform.

Senior House Celebration of Christmas

The Senior House Celebration of Christmas is always the highlight of our calendar and this year our SH girls surpassed all expectation with their wonderful singing, playing and readings. Now we are all well and truly in the Christmas Spirit. Thank you so much to Mrs Wilson for organising such a spectacular event, to all staff and parents who helped and to all our parents, friends and relatives who came to watch. Merry Christmas!

Bowles Residential Trip – Form FIV

Form IV – Bowles Residential Trip. We are having a lovely time here at Bowles in Kent. We arrived safely, unpacked, had lunch and then went straight to dry slope skiing. We kept our balance (mostly) and learned how to ski! Then it was time to really challenge ourselves and put our team building skills to the test – we went bouldering. It was tough but we did it, in true Seaton House style.

FVI Visit the Royal School of Needlework

 

A report by Dila Seshadri, FVI:   On Wednesday 10th October, Form VI went for the first time to the Royal School of Needlework Animals in Embroidery Exhibition at Hampton Court Palace.   I personally thought it was great, as it was fascinating to see all the amazing embroidered art with such detail at arm’s length.  Even though we did not have time to look at the spectacular pieces of art, we did have an amazing experience of making giant buttons of either a spider, a bee, a ladybird or a bat, stitching colourful threads into linen.  It was a very memorable experience as the people working there were very kind and loved being asked questions all the time.  All together, I believe Seaton House should send more Forms as it was a very educational trip and a lovely place to go.

Seaton House Harvest Festival Celebrations

This morning, both Junior House and Senior House hosted Harvest Assemblies.  Thank you to all our parents for coming to support us.  This afternoon, as part of our Harvest Celebrations, FVI took gifts and flowers to the residents of Eversfield House, a home for the elderly in Sutton. The girls spent the afternoon with the residents and entertained them with songs, jokes and sketches that they wrote themselves.

 

Maths Enrichment Day

A report by Ramya, FVI,  Maths Prefect.      On Thursday 11th October, the whole school enjoyed a very entertaining Maths Enrichment Day. A Mathsmagician came in and showed us some wonderful tricks which amazed us so much! This was followed by a professor all the way from Cambridge University, who challenged us to make seemingly impossible 3D shapes which left us baffled for hours!  We were also put together with our House to solve very fun and puzzling maths problems and mysteries, followed by making our own mathematical board games. To end a spectacular day, we were given maths stickers and pencils to take home! This was definitely the best Maths Enrichment day ever and I hope we do it again soon!

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Thank you so much to everyone who came to school today to support our Macmillan Coffee Morning. We had a lovely morning, the girls were a vision in pink and FVI were wonderful hosts.   Thank you especially to our wonderful PTA for working so hard to make this event such a success.
