Head's Weekly Review 24 11 2017

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean

School News
We have had another busy week at the School.  As the festive season fast approaches, the House 4 boarders celebrated Thanksgiving with a special turkey roast dinner, followed by pumpkin pie, and many other delicious treats made by our wonderful catering staff.  On 20 November two teams (Year 7 and Year 8) entered the Kids’ Literature Quiz. This is an annual literature competition for students aged 10 to 13. The girls competed in the South England heat of the quiz, where the three-hour competition consisted of ten challenging genre rounds which included Classics, Clocks, Knights, Snakes, and Escapes.

Last Saturday was the annual Model United Nations conference, hosted by Croydon High School. The School sent four delegations, representing Hungary, South Korea, Jamaica, and Djibouti, to discuss topics as wide-ranging as apologising for the slave trade to regulating trans-national companies.  On Tuesday we were delighted to host a new production of Antigone in the School’s theatre, performed by the Actors of Dionysus as part of their nationwide tour.
