Head's Weekly Review 25 01 2019

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.
28 Jan 2019
School News
It has been another jam-packed week at the School. 3Fall Dance Company from the University of Chichester visited Roedean last week to give a workshop to the Year 10 GCSE Dance students, focusing on contemporary technique. Our students worked very hard and enjoyed working with the company members. The School also ran its first ever in-house entrepreneurial challenge. We were lucky enough to have successful entrepreneur and published author, David Mellor, coming in to run a business simulation. The students worked in groups competing against each other to generate as much profit as they could by making a range of business decisions. In other news, Year 8 and Year 9 were fortunate enough to benefit from a workshop on Indonesian gamelan music. John Pawson, from the Royal College of Music, led the girls into some wonderful ensemble playing on these beautiful and ancient instruments. And finally, students from Year 11 and Year 12 took part in a workshop with Kate Walker Miles from RADA Business, in which they explored how to develop their communication skills, have a commanding presence, and the confidence to present themselves with credibility in front of different audiences and in different environments.
