Head's Weekly Review 18 01 2019

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

It’s been a busy week at Roedean! Congratulations to all our Year 13 for their university offers. We are delighted that four girls have received the wonderful news that they have been offered conditional places to study at Cambridge University. This is an exceptional achievement, and everyone at Roedean is very proud of them. Further congratulations to Kinsco (Y7) and Paula (Y8) who became Roedean’s first ever ‘Language Buddies’ last week. As ‘Language Buddies’, the girls will travel to St Mark’s Primary School every week to work with students who speak the same native language as they do: Hungarian and Spanish respectively. In other news, 17 enthusiastic Year 6 artists joined the Art Department last Tuesday for a day of artistic explorations. The girls were able to experience what it is like being a Roedean Art student. They spent the day exploring the theme of sweets and cakes in lots of different media, including printing and painting. And finally, the Sussex Schools’ Cross Country event last week was a great occasion with the Junior Girls up first. Special mention goes to Sophie N, who had a fantastic race and came in fifth, resulting in qualifying for a place in the Sussex team at Inter-counties.
