Last week, Seaford College Prep School Year 8 pupils had a day out of the classroom to learn about the environment on Worthing beach. The children completed several fieldwork activities, including identifying sea defences and studying features of tourism. The tourism exercise was particularly popular as it involved eating ice creams!
On Friday 27 May, the children undertook a sponsored walk in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, a charity close to the heart of Mrs Reed whose niece, Katie, has the condition. We were thrilled that Katie joined us for this day to cheer on the children. The pupils greatly enjoyed the event and we’re pleased to announce that we raised £325.
Well done everyone and a huge thank-you to all involved!
The Seaford College Prep School show jumping team of Emily Cook, Abigail Jupp and Lauren Goldsmith came a fantastic first last weekend in the 50cm inter-schools competition run by Copthorne Prep School.
“The girls and their ponies were brilliant and we have had a very fun and exciting day, also qualifying for the Grassroots National Championships,” said Lucy Sanders, Seaford’s Equestrian Team Manager. “A good day for Seaford Equestrian!”
Seaford College Headmaster John Green was delighted to receive letters recently from Year 7 science classes taught by Mr Barnham. The letters related to how we could be far more eco-friendly at Seaford. Mr Green was incredibly impressed by the children’s initiative and invited the entire group in for a special lesson with him in his study – including croissants and hot chocolate.
“During the lesson we had some very engaging and informative discussions, including introducing electric vehicles for our support staff, sensor lights that turn off automatically throughout the campus, solar panels on roofs and even Seaford having its own windmill to generate power!” said Mr Green. “To me this is what an all-round education is truly about – giving children the self-esteem to promote their own views and opinions in a most well researched and interesting manner.”
