Head's Weekly Review 29 11 2019

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

The focus of last week at Roedean was Academic Week. The School community indulged in a dazzling array of events, experiences, and lectures, all themed around tricks of the mind. The intention was to explore common misconceptions, illusions, and delusions, as well as looking at some of the amazingly weird and wonderful capabilities of our minds. Highlights included the whole school attending 50-minute lectures on topics as diverse as String Theory and Building Your Own Mind Palace. Throughout the week, the Academic Prefects have been running an Alice in Wonderland-themed Escape Room. It was a lot of fun to put together, and the girls showed some outstanding teamwork to solve a range of different problems. In other news, last Tuesday, it was our privilege to host the Brighton Kemptown parliamentary candidates for the three main parties, along with a Green councillor for the city, for Roedean’s Hustings. The audience of a packed theatre of students and staff enjoyed hearing our guests outlining their priorities. The questions from the floor challenged them to explain how they will deal with local and national issues. And finally, in celebration of Roedean International Day, the House 4 girls enjoyed making (and eating!) a variety of food from around the world including Mexican nachos, American pancakes, Italian pizzas, and Australian pavlovas!
