Head's Weekly review 16 11 2018

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

19 Nov 2018
School News
It really was wonderful last week for 16 girls and 4 members of staff to spend time at our sister school in South Africa. The group quickly discovered how similar the girls are in their outlook and warmth, and how our two schools clearly have a great deal in common. The girls felt like they were meeting long-lost friends, and we now have the firmest of foundations on which to build a whole range of exciting and challenging joint projects and exchanges. In other news, early applicants for Oxford and Cambridge Universities, and for Medicine and Veterinary Medicine courses, from Roedean and Lancing College came together last week for our annual interview exchange and dinner. After the interviews and a three-course meal, we were delighted to welcome our guest speaker, Old Roedeanian and Oxford University alumna, Adele Geras, whose works of young adult fiction include the enormously popular ‘Troy’. In other news, we were delighted to welcome Crista Cullen MBE to the School last week to run a Hockey Experience Day for prospective Roedean pupils. Like Sport’s Ambassadors, Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh, Crista is an Olympic Gold medal winner. It was our pleasure to welcome 65 girls from 16 Schools, and all who came to the day were over the moon to meet Crista and learnt a great deal. And finally, we marked Remembrance as a community last Monday, with two services which included explanations of the two-minute silence and the significance of red poppies, as well as a reading from archive material from the time when Roedean was HMS Vernon.
