Seaford in Union

'Seaford in Union' wishing good luck to all of the teams in the Rugby World Cup 2019!

'Seaford in Union' celebrating the Rugby World Cup 2019!

Seaford has once again brought many teams together to celebrate the Rugby World Cup 2019 with this video.  When we looked at the lyrics of the World Cup anthem, the ‘World in Union’ we saw many significant lines that reflect the Seaford ethos.

Notably:
‘Just to be the best I can
That’s the goal for every man
If I win, lose or draw
It’s a victory for all’

As an academically non-selective school we believe in our students achieving their personal bests both inside and outside the classroom. Our sporting ethos promotes sportsmanship, respect, enjoyment, effort, energy and enthusiasm.  Winning is important but our sporting culture is about so much more.

Our Headmaster John Green believes everyone should be part of a team and this doesn’t have to be a sports team.  We see our Choirs as a teams as well as the various sports teams around the school. This video features our Prep School Sunshine Singers Choir and our Senior School Chapel Choir.

Many of our rugby players featured in this video are also in the Chapel Choir and perform in our musicals. The most recent example is Les Misérables which is all about unity, a theme of the Rugby World Cup anthem. 

On this video, Hannah Wardrop sings the ‘World in Union’ in Seaford’s music quad.  Hannah has aspirations to join the Royal College of Music, and plans to be an opera singer for the English National Opera. 

Another significant line in the lyrics is:
‘Once joined, never apart’ 

Once you’ve been touched by how special Seaford College is, it stays with you forever.  This video features many Seaford alumni.  Fergus Guiry is being congratulated by our Director of Sport, Liam Doubler with his England shirt.  Fergus gained a contract with England Rugby 7s in his final year at Seaford.  Will Norton is featured in an England top singing with our Chapel Choir.  Will was Head Chorister and in our 1st XV Rugby team during his time at Seaford and has returned to do his teacher training this September.  He can’t keep away!

Other alumni featured are Piers Plowman, Matt Kouris and Lewis Morton. Piers is a sports coach and has been the Paralympic Assistant Coach for the British Triathlon Federation.
