Natalie, who was also part of the squad in 2016 when they won Gold in the World Championships in New Zealand, told us that she’s: “Over the moon! The secret is finally out. I can’t wait to represent my country again and go to South Africa to retain our title in August”.
Every year, Head of Boarding Matthew Pitteway organises a Santa Dash towards the end of the Winter Term, to raise money for Walled Garden West’s charity of the term. This term, it is YoungMinds, and they’ve currently raised £500.
Matthew reports on today’s festive run!
“Nineteen of us set off today on Seaford’s annual Santa Dash from Seaford to East Dean. Although the forecast was for ‘heavy rain’ it was actually dry the whole way round. The ground was very wet though and that was the big challenge this year – dealing with slipping over the whole time.
Spirits were really high all the way round and we had regular breaks for photos which gave some of the slower members of the group a chance to catch up. We eventually made it to the Star & Garter just after 3pm and all enjoyed some refreshment before heading back to Seaford.”
Great work everyone!
Breaking news! Seaford’s U14 Girls Netball team came 2nd in the County on Saturday, in the first round of the National Schools Competition. This is the biggest school’s competition in the netball calendar, and Georgie Hegarty, Head of Netball at Seaford, is very proud of their achievement.
“Over the last couple of years, we’ve been getting closer and closer to progressing, but this is the first time that a Seaford team has managed to make it through to the regional round. We really look forward to representing the top Sussex schools in January.”
Congratulations to the team for making it through, we can’t wait to cheer you on in the next round!
Tour Blog Day 7 & 8
Today was a good day… all the usual waking up for breakfast went on before we headed to the Signal Hill, right at the top of Dunedin. The sights were incredible, right across the whole city. We went straight from here and onto the Cadbury World factory tour, which lived up to expectations. We think that most enjoyed the part where they could pour their own liquid chocolate into little pots with all the toppings. Most were feeling quite full of chocolate by the end.
There was a little time to shop and buy lunch in Dunedin again before transferring to Kings’ and Queens’ High Schools for our matches. Continue reading
