Welcome back after the half-term break, where the high wind and wet weather continues at Roedean! Congratulations to everyone involved in House Dance at the end of last half-term. Each House demonstrated some innovative and crowd-pleasing dancing, with a combination of skill, technique, enthusiasm, and joy. Well done to all our House dancers and House dance captains, and congratulations to House 2 for winning the overall prize. On Friday 7 February, seven A Level Spanish students headed up to the Cervantes Theatre in London to see the all-female production of La Casa de Bernarda Alba by Federico García Lorca - all of which was in Spanish! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience. In other news, Leila (Yr13), Camille (Yr11) and Anne-Sophie (Yr11) made a visit to St Mark's Primary School to deliver a special lesson on Chinese culture to the Year 2 class. First, they taught the eager students about the Chinese Zodiac, including how the animals earned their places for each year. The students were very grateful and appreciated their 'Chinese gift', a traditional red envelope to hold their unique greetings. And finally, GCSE drama practical exams took place the week before half-term; it was a brilliant reflection of the hard work, talent and commitment of all the pupils involved. Each pupil had to perform an extract in front of an audience and an external examiner. A big thank you to the fantastic audience of Year 10s to 13s, staff and parents who gave up their free time to support the girls, this was hugely appreciated, as, it is not only an exam requirement, but also really added to the atmosphere.
