Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

The School and its grounds looked fantastic in the warm sunshine we enjoyed last week. On Wednesday, a group of sixth formers had the opportunity to visit Christie’s in London. However, they weren’t just visiting to see some of the art for auction – along with a quick tour of the Old Masters’ Department, they were there to hand in a possible John Constable painting to be authenticated. The painting has recently been re-examined and preliminary research suggests the painting may be by John Constable, rather than a lesser known relative of his as previously thought. Over half term, 30 girls from Years 9-13 had a brilliant time on the school trip to Iceland. They packed masses into 4 chilly days and the girls were perfect ambassadors for Roedean. In other news, on Monday afternoon, all of Year 9 attended a workshop with Roots and Shoots, an arm of the Jane Goodall Foundation, which aims to promote sustainability and environmental awareness in schools. Roedean will be registered as a partner school for the Roots and Shoots project, so that we can work together to make Roedean even more sustainable. And finally, congratulations to Susan C (Yr13) who has achieved a Gold Medal in the British Mathematical Olympiad, following her success in the UK Mathematics Trust Senior Mathematical Challenge last term. In the Olympiad, Susan scored a remarkable 52 points out of 60, and her Gold Medal means that she was placed in the top 20 or so entrants across the entire country. This is a fantastic achievement – well done, Susan!
