Head's Weekly Review 24 01 2020

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

27 Jan 2020
School News
It’s been a busy and varied week at Roedean! Congratulations to two Roedean girls who have been placed first and second in the 20th World Chinese Essay Writing Competition. The girls’ achievement is all the more impressive, because about 5 million Chinese students in 34 countries, including China, participated. Last Tuesday evening, Years 10-12 and their parents attended the School’s ‘University ready?! Higher Education Information Evening’. Advice was given on applying to university, with an emphasis on how to approach the application process if you don’t yet know what you want to study. Dr Suzie Imber, Associate Professor and Director of Admissions in Space Physics at the University of Leicester, and Roedean’s STEM Ambassador, gave valuable guidance during a Q&A session. In other news, The Roedean Academy for this academic year launched last week, and it was a great pleasure to welcome 53 students from 4 local state schools to join with 22 Roedean girls to take part in a programme of academic enrichment. Every week each student will chose two modules in either STEM, Arts, Humanities or English. The topics covered in each module are not on examination specifications – taking these modules is just for the joy of learning about something completely new. And finally, all girls in Year 9 enjoyed an amazing day last Monday of vibrant music-making in the company of workshop leader Helen Longton-Howorth. The girls learned from scratch how to play steel pans in a whole class ensemble in this interactive workshop.
