Head's Weekly Review 21 06 2019
Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.
Only 4 ‘action packed’ days to go until the end of term! On Friday, Year 9 were honoured to have Holocaust survivor Dorit Oliver- Wolff return to the school and talk about her experiences as a young Jewish girl during the Holocaust. The girls, who have this term been studying the Holocaust, were spellbound by Dorit’s account of her fascinating life and her fight for survival against all the odds. On Tuesday, 18 girls took part in the finals of the Roedean Musician of the Year. The standard was incredibly high, and our adjudicator, Scott Stroman, praised all the girls for their accomplished and musical performances. In other news, the Art Department held a Private View last Thursday of GCSE and A Level work. The standard, range, and variety of media was exceptional, including ceramics, painting, fashion, textiles, and print-making. The friends and family of the artists joined the girls, and there were representatives from feeder schools and some who will be joining Roedean in September. And finally, last week was National Boarding Week, and the Houses took the opportunity to celebrate everything that is brilliant about boarding. There has been a barbecue, karaoke, a party to say farewell to Year 11s, and much more! The week’s events have highlighted the strength and cohesion of the boarding communities at Roedean.
