This week we were lucky to be visited by Natalie Swift, ex England Netball and Super League Player who came to Seaton House to give our pupils a netball coaching session. After the training sessions she stayed to umpire the House Netball Tournament.  Congratulations to York House who won the House Cup.

At the end of November, FIV and FV went to Bowles Activity Centre for two nights.  There was much excitement as the girls tackled new skills such as dry slope skiing, bouldering and archery.  The days were action packed and the weather was perfect for such an adventure.  The girls came home tired, but very happy.

In June this year, FI and FV sent happy birthday wishes to the Queen for her 90th birthday.  Just before half term, the girls were delighted – and very honoured – to receive a royal response, from the Queen’s Lady-In-Waiting, who thanked all our pupils for their kind and thoughtful messages.

On Friday 21st October, GB Athlete Luke Lennard Ford came to Seaton House to give the girls some Athletics Training and to raise sports awareness at school.  He certainly put Senior House pupils – and Staff! – through their paces.  After training Luke stayed on to help judge some in-house competitions.

On Friday 30th September we held a Coffee Morning to raise money for Jeans for Genes Day, MacMillan and Breast Cancer Research.  Our pupils came to school dressed in pink and our parents baked cakes for us to sell. The Coffee Morning was a huge success – we raised £742.00!  Thank you to all our pupils, families and friends who came to support us.

 

At the end of term, we held a graduation ceremony for all Nursery pupils who are leaving to attend Junior House or Primary School in September.  We were all very proud and we had a lovely day.

On Tuesday 21st June, Senior House pupils went by coach to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to watch a live international women’s hockey match between Australia and Argentina. The girls had a wonderful time and, as the event was filmed, they even made a television appearance! During the interval, some schools were asked to participate in a hockey competition which Alia Peerbhoy, FVI, won! Congratulations to her and to all the girls for being such wonderful representatives of Seaton House.

In honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday, on Friday 10th June, Seaton House pupils celebrated by coming to school dressed in red, white and blue.

In March, FV and FVI went on their residential trip to the Isle of Wight.  The girls enjoyed a variety of outdoor activities and had great fun.

There was great excitement in Nursery in February, when the children hatched their very own Easter Chicks!
