Head's Weekly Review 07 06 2019

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

13 Jun 2019
School News
Last Thursday the School held a special service in the Quad, overlooking the English Channel, to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. The impact of the readings and hymns while overlooking the sea on a bright morning was very moving. Not only is D-Day a highly significant event in twentieth-century history, the fact that Roedean housed a Naval training base in World War II gives D-Day particular significance for us. We are delighted to be supporting the charity, Off the Fence, which provides food for the homeless in Brighton. Every Thursday the School will be providing lunch for 50 people, but rather than simply donating left-over food, the Catering department will be preparing 50 additional portions of what the girls will be eating. In other news, our Year 13 Leavers had a brilliant time at their Ball on the Friday before Half Term. The evening started with a pre-dinner drink on the i360, followed by a wonderful dinner in The Grand. And finally, on Wednesday 5 June over 60 Roedean students from Year 10 to 12, along with their parents and guardians, and 12 students from each of Varndean and Longhill School, attended our Oxbridge Conference. The School hosted a panel discussion with representatives from both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, as well as OR Emily Townsend, who is currently in her first year studying Chemistry at St Hilda’s College, Oxford.
