Head's Weekly Review 27 09 2019

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

30 Sep 2019
School News
Last week ended with Chapel services to mark Founders’ Day. So much of Roedean’s core ethos is linked directly to our founding Lawrence sisters, and the School community comes together to remember them, as well as others who have played a key role in shaping the development of the School over the years. For photos of the service, please see the school’s Facebook page. We were delighted to welcome both Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh, our Sports Ambassadors, to Roedean last week. They ran interactive workshops on mental resilience for every girl in Years 7 and 9, and the Sports’ Scholars. In other news, the Year 11 Geographers travelled to Juniper Hall, in Dorking, to spend the weekend collecting data for their GCSE exam. The weekend included conducting a public survey, as well as fieldwork along the River Tillingbourne. Year 11 students also had a thoroughly enjoyable day at Sandhurst STEM Careers Fair last week. From making a circuit using lemons and copper coins to holding parachutes, it was not only fun but also informed the girls of the possibilities of a future career in STEM. And finally, the Roedean Music Scholars’ Recital last Monday was a wonderful showcase of impressive musicianship, and it was a real pleasure to see players and singers from Years 7-13 performing.
