School Road Safety

 

Please find below details for the council meeting that will discuss Mrs Hardin’s petition for a safe pedestrian crossing outside Seaton House:

It’s being held on Thursday 29th January 2015 at 7.00pm at St Dunstan’s primary school, Anne Boleyn’s Walk, Cheam SM3 8DF.

It would be great if as many parents as possible could come along to support our cause. I am happy to arrange to meet people outside beforehand and pile in together. The more support  we can muster, the more seriously we hope they will consider our request.

Other parents can contact me on amberlein@hotmail.com for more details.

Reminders for Next Week

Wednesday 28th – Forms III-VI Cross Country against Bramley (A) 1.30-4.00pm

Thursday 29th – Junior House to the Horniman Museum

   Hockey V & VI ‘A’ v Sutton High (A)

 

 

Parking

Please can we remind parents not to park in or across the driveway of Junior House when collecting your daughter. The forecourt of Junior House is for staff parking only and parking across the driveway, even for a few minutes, blocks access into and out of school.

 

Appeal for Information

Mrs Julie Budgett (Reception) parked her small red car on West Way, just below the Nursery, on Monday this week 19th January.  Her car was parked between 8.10am-4.00pm and in that time her car was badly damaged by another vehicle.  If anybody saw anything when dropping off or collecting from Nursery or has any information they could pass on to her it would be much appreciated.  Please contact the School Office by phone or email if you can help.

 

Sports Report

On Tuesday 20th January the U11’s played Hockey against Bramley. We lost the toss and they chose first centre pass. It was our first hockey match of the season. We started off well stopping them from scoring any goals.  At half time the score was 0-0.  In the second half we got the ball down our end but they stopped us from scoring goals.  We all worked hard running up and down the pitch but the final score was 0-0.  Well played everyone.

Bramley v Seaton House Hockey (Form V)

On Tuesday 20th the U10’s played against Bramley in Hockey.  Bramley won the toss and chose first centre pass.  At the beginning of the match we were getting used Bramley’s game play.  Then we warmed up and were attacking and defending really well.  Bianca kept bringing the ball down to Bramley’s goal and we were so close to shooting.  Mrs Wilson was really supporting us and we could hear her voice in the background.  Georgia brought the ball down to Bramley’s goal and passed to Lucy who scored a cracking goal!  At half time it was 1-0 to us.  We had very good advice from Mrs Mannooch at our team talk and the triangle method really helped us.  We were ready to beat them in the second half of the game.  We were doing really well at the beginning of the second half and then Bramley brought the ball down to our end and came close to scoring.  It was beginning to get tense, thankfully we had some good defenders in Rosie and Zoe.  They played extremely well and hit the ball wide so we were sure that Bramley would not be able to manage the ball because it would be out of play.  There was great passing from Georgia, Lucy and Bianca.  Sariyya was a great goal keeper.  Ten minutes before the end Bianca shot an amazing goal and the final score was 2-0 to us.

 

We now know we can beat Bramley and we will do our best to win the match on Wednesday against Oakwood with the same positive attitude.

Oakwood Vs Seaton House Hockey (Form VI)

On Wednesday afternoon the 21st of January the FVI hockey team had a successful away fixture with Oakwood. Following on from our exciting close encounter with Bramley on the previous day we carried our team sprit forward into the Oakwood game.

Once again the whole team performed extremely well in another end to end game.

Although this was Oakwood's first hockey match they gave a very good account of themselves in the first half with the score ending 1-1 at half time.

Once the second half was underway we found our stride and began to take control of the game, with excellent movement and passing throughout the team not to mention great goalkeeping from Angelique

Both Lucy's defended well from the back enabling Isabella to control the middle of the pitch with Imam and Lauren working tirelessly down the wings all supplying great passes into the goal dee for us to convert into goals.

Our positive approach to this game enabled us to be victorious by 7 goals to 1.

Fantastic effort everyone .

News from POSH

Dear Parents

 

Firstly a belated Happy New Year! January seems to be whizzing by!

 

Huge thanks for all the support we received last term, we were genuinely taken aback by how many parents, grandparents and siblings were willing to help and support POSH.  Last term we all raised nearly £3000 at the Christmas bazaar, Christmas disco and through second hand uniform sales.

 

Posh would welcome any feedback you have on any of these activities or suggestions for future events that you would like to take place. Please feel free to e-mail your ideas and suggestions to parentsofseatonhouse@hotmail.com. 

 

There are some very exciting events coming up over the year, the dates of which have been detailed below. 

 

Events – 2015

 

Line Dancing Disco                -           Friday 27th February – 6.00 to 8.00pm

Summer Fair                           -           Saturday 20th June – 12.00 to 2.00pm

Disco                                       -           Friday 6th November – 6.00 to 8.00pm

Christmas Bazaar                  -           Saturday 21st November – 12.00 to 2.00pm

 

 

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED  Unfortunately as it stands there is no-one to organise POSH for all of the upcoming events and sadly if nobody volunteers, they will not be able to take place!  This would be a great loss to the school, as the events not only raise valuable funds for our school, but they are also an opportunity for our children to socialise with each other outside of normal school activities.

 

The role can be carried out by one parent, a couple, or a few to share the load!  If you are interested in taking over the Chairperson role, please contact Mrs Morrison by e-mailing the School Office to office@seatonhouse.sutton.sch.uk.

 

If you have any queries about anything else POSH related, you can either speak to your Form Rep (listed below), or send an e-mail direct to parentsofseatonhouse@hotmail.com. 

 

We hope 2015 will be as successful for POSH as last year and we would like to thank you again in anticipation of your valued and much appreciated support.

 

With thanks from everyone at POSH
