Head's Weekly Review 26 04 2019

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

29 Apr 2019
School News
Welcome back to everyone, the School is looking beautiful, with wonderfully manicured lawns and beds planted with spring flowers. We are also delighted to welcome two more lambs born on the Farm, taking our tally to five. They are all now out in the fields enjoying the fine weather. During the holidays, a group of 4 staff and 33 girls enjoyed a fantastic tour of Greece, exploring classical sites and also experiencing an earthquake first hand. The trip included visiting 6 museums and 8 ancient sites, as well as swimming in the sea and eating lots of ice creams! On Thursday last week the Year 11 GCSE Dance students had the chance to perform their exam pieces in front of an audience of Years 7-9. Well done everyone involved. In other news, on 14 April, 1000s of runners descended on sunny Brighton to take part in the 10th Brighton Marathon. This year, Roedean had its own Water Station right outside our historic gates on Marine Drive, to hand water to all the runners at mile 7.5. And finally, we were delighted to hear that Alex S, in Year 7, who competed in the British Short Track Championships in Sheffield over Easter, achieved 3 gold medals. In her first year as a speed skater, she has broken three national U13 records and is a four time British Championship Gold Medallist. Congratulations on all the hard work, determination and training that it must have taken to compete at such a high level.
