Seaton’s and Wedd’s Christmas traditions keep rolling

It started when Mr. Evans moved into boarding. Veteran boys anticipate the photo message from Mr. Evans; New boys buy in quickly. Mr. Evans loves his camera. Judging by the photo, it looks like the boys love having their photo taken.

The “Secret Santa” tradition in Wedd’s is as firmly entrenched as the Seaton’s Christmas tree photo. Mr. Beaudoin and Dr. Baxter have been facilitating this tradition for several years. The photo illustrates the common room gathering where gifts from “Secret Santa” are distributed to every student. The tradition brings many good laughs and helps break the exam anxiety, providing a great holiday tradition and a welcome break from the books.
