Head's Weekly Review 28 06 2019
What an amazing last week it has been! The girls and staff have had a brilliant time, and been involved in an amazing array of activities. We were delighted to have 2 fantastic performance opportunities to finish off the term and academic year; the Performing Arts Gala and pre-launch of Artemis Performing Arts School on Friday evening, and Roedean’s Got Talent on Monday evening. The Performing Arts Gala featured 75 girls from across all years, who were all invited to perform some highlights of music, dance and drama from the 2018/19 academic year. It was also absolutely brilliant to see the whole school community walking together to raise money for St Mark’s Primary and the ten girls we support around the world through PlanUK. The walk was for 5 kilometres, but the girls were given the option to walk an additional 5k, and it was fantastic that over half of the girls chose to do this. In other news, on Saturday 22 June, a perfect summer’s day, we were delighted to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements of the girls in Years 7-10 in their Prize Giving ceremonies, and welcome back 230 ORs, former staff and their guests, as well as current parents, for Roedean Day. And finally, congratulations to Mary, Chloe, and Freya (Yr13) who have won the ‘Best Innovation - Model, Prototype, or Product’ category at the 2019 TeenTech Awards, presented at a glitzy awards’ ceremony at the Institute of Engineering and Technology in London. This amazing success highlights the wonderful strength in the Sciences among the girls at Roedean, and the School is incredibly proud of them.
