Head's Weekly Review 02 11 2018

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

This week we have welcomed the girls back after a rejuvenating half-term.  During the break, the Art Department led a trip to Venice. The visit was jam-packed with art galleries, and exhibitions, and everybody was able to take something away to add to their sketchbook. 33 girls also went to Belgium on a Music Tour which was a great success. The group played in beautiful cathedrals in Ghent, Brussels, and Mechelen, and were warmly welcomed with smiles and standing ovations from the audiences. In other news, just before the half term break, all Year 7 pupils took part in an exciting day of rhythmic, music and movement, a samba workshop, making the most enormous amount of sound in the Theatre. The stage was filled with a vast array of samba instruments, including surdos, tamborims, ganzas, and agogo bells. And finally, the annual Horror Maze was a great way to begin the half term. This year it was set up in the Cloisters, and the naturally spooky feel of the archways with all the shadows, made it really atmospheric. With girls in all year groups (as well as a few teachers) getting involved, it was a great way to celebrate Halloween as a school community.
