Head's Weekly Review 18 09 2020

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

Roedean goes with the flow!
Roedean goes with the flow!
After just restarting School, we could never have foreseen that we would have to close the School site last week due to a water leak. A burst water main in the local area really did mean that we had no water in School. Day girls went home and there were impromptu trips for boarders – by the time they got back, Portaloos had arrived, along with copious supplies of drinking water. Although School remained closed on Tuesday, all lessons were taught remotely. Everyone responded very positively and showed again how adaptable they are. In other news, last week students from Years 8 & 9 have been orienteering on the South Downs, which forms part of the Heads, Hands, and Hearts (HHH) curriculum. The lessons aim to teach the valuable skill of navigation, as well introducing our students to the local area, its history, and the South Downs National Park. And finally, congratulations to Ashlyn (Yr13), who has undertaken independent research into how well the decoupling theorem works with a quantum computer. She complied her findings as a research paper, which has been accepted by the 2020 International Conference on Energy Science and Engineering Thermophysics, and will be published – what a remarkable achievement! Read these stories and more in this week’s Head’s Weekly Review.
