Head's Weekly Review 15 03 2019

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

What an amazing day International Woman’s day was! Fifteen successful women from a variety of fields came to Roedean to share their experiences with the girls and staff. The normal school timetable was collapsed for the day, and, with up to 7 talks running concurrently in each of the 5 sessions, the girls were able to choose which to attend. This meant that each girl could really pursue her own interests. In other news, the Art department took a small group of Year 12 and 13 students to The Royal Institute of Great Britain in London. Leading Art critic and Arts TV presenter, Andrew Graham Dixon, delivered a lecture entitled ‘How to Look at Paintings'. The students thoroughly enjoyed his unique approach and delivery of Art History. The Drama GCSE performance exam took place in the theatre on Tuesday evening last week. It was a wonderful celebration of talent and creativity, and all the girls had worked very hard on their extracts. Each had to perform either a group piece or duologue alongside a monologue in front of an external examiner, as well as an audience that consisted of family and friends. And finally, we are delighted that 2 lambs have arrived on the School farm, more news on them to follow in next week’s report!
