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.
This morning we held our final assembly of the term. As another action-packed, fun-filled term draws to a close, we wish all our families, friends and teachers a very happy, peaceful Easter break.
On Wednesday, FV and FVI learned all about self defence, how to use public transport safely, how to safely use our mobile phone outside, how to go online safely and what to do if we are made to feel uncomfortable while out without an adult. Many thanks to PC Angie Gayle, PC Kerry Grover and PCSO Laura Jagoe to talking us through these safety measures and to Keron, Sophie and Tony from Fighting Fit who taught us some useful moves. Now we know how to ward off an attacker and we are fully equipped to deal with any situation — thank you Mrs Mannooch for organising such a useful and informative day.
Tuesday was Harry Potter Day at Seaton House. During Assembly, the Sorting Hat put us into our houses — Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. During the day, we played Quidditch and scored points for our houses, we made wizard hats, we played wizard bingo, we made owl pom poms, dragon plates and painted potion bottles. Thank you Mrs Mannooch for organising this fantastic day!
FIV & FV have spent a very interesting week learning all about life in Ancient Greece. We learned all about art and pottery, the clothes we might have worn and all about myths and the culture, the gods and goddesses. We made crowns and Trojan horses, and in assembly, we showed off the Greek dancing we have learned. We did our own Olympics and took part in a theatre workshop run by the Theatre Exchange. All in all, a fascinating week!
