Seward House recently enjoyed another hugely successful House Week in support of our long standing charity partner The Midlands Air Ambulance.

Seward House came together magnificently during difficult times to put on a real show and raise vital funds for charity. Highlights of the week included Mr Havill’s 100 laps of the school inspired by Sir Captain Tom Moore. He completed the 23 miles within the week finishing at lunch time on the Friday. All students in the House also pledged to walk a mile around the school’s football pitch to support Mr Havill’s efforts. In total a combined mileage of 272 miles was covered by students in years 7-11.

Year 11 students ran a hugely successful “Guess the Number of Sweets in the Jar” competition – Miss Stone is still counting the sweets. Year 8 students created and sold House coloured tinsel bracelets. Year 7 fought back against Johnson House with a second running of the successful ‘Penny Wars’ competition. Students in a number of Years, but chiefly Years 9 – 10, created fabulously festive, re-usable face masks. These sold out in record time and personalised baubles were also ordered by students in all years. These will be available for collection before Christmas.

Elsewhere, Seward House Council felt it important to recognise the hard work of all emergency care workers during our House Week. Posters adorned the school site and all school students participated in a ‘Clap for our Carers’ event at the end of our House Week.

Sydney Tearle, Seward House Captain said: “I am overjoyed at the manner in which the whole of Seward House came together during our House Week. Students in all Year groups and Houses played a real part. This year it has been particularly difficult to organise activities that offered the opportunity for lots of people to get involved. I know also that it has been difficult for lots of families. We really cannot thank you enough for you kind donations, they will make a real difference to The Midlands Air Ambulance charity.”
