Head's Weekly Review 03 05 2019

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

It’s been a busy week at the School. Last Friday, Year 12 and Year 13 Geographers completed their Physical Geography coastal field work day in Seaford. This spectacular stretch of coastline enabled students to investigate the impacts of coastal management on rates of erosion and deposition. On Friday 26 April, the fantastic annual Staff & Student Netball Tournament took place, bringing staff and students together in 5 teams to battle it out for the Netball Crown! 40 members of staff and pupils from Year 10 and above joined together to form mixed teams and play against each other in a mini tournament. In other news, it was an absolute pleasure to welcome the internationally-renowned conductor, Rebecca Miller, back to Roedean on Wednesday, to lead twelve of our musicians in a day of masterclasses, focusing on what a conductor needs to do to get the best out of an orchestra. And finally, the Year 12 Biologists spent a day at Wakehurst last week, learning all about the importance and conservation of plants both inside their natural habitat (in situ conservation) and outside it (ex situ conservation). Wakehurst is home to the Millennium Seed Bank, now the most biodiverse place on the planet, due to the number of different types of seeds stored there.
