Head's Weekly Review 15 01 2021

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.
18 Jan 2021
School News

Happy New Year, and welcome ‘back’ to Roedean to you all after the Christmas holidays. The UK is again in national lockdown, the School is closed, and many exams have been cancelled. Although we are returning to remote online learning, we are in a very strong position, safe in the knowledge that we have done this before, highly effectively and successfully.

We had very exciting online lessons in PE last week. Pupils across the whole school were offered a session run by either Anna Carter, who runs an elite netball academy, or Natalie Panagarry, who is a professional netballer and represented England at the 2019 World Cup. We are extremely grateful to both for sharing their knowledge and experiences with the girls last week.

In other news, congratulations to thirty-two students from Roedean who have been named as winners in the World Chinese Essay Writing competition, which opened for entries in May 2020, and ended in November. This competition is open to students of Chinese throughout the world, including young people in China itself.

And finally, congratulations to our two Year 13s, who have been successful in securing offers from Oxford to read Law and Engineering. It is great to see the many impressive university offers the girls in Year 13 have received so far – well done! Read these stories and more in this week’s Head’s Weekly Review, and we wish everyone in the Roedean community well.
