Well done to everyone in Years 7-10 who took their end of year examinations last week. The girls celebrated with a fun afternoon on Friday, which included a silent disco and eating delicious ice-cream, served from Betty the vintage van! We are delighted that 5 Roedean Sixth Formers have been named finalists for the Young Volunteer of the Year 2021. Liv and Gracie (Yr13) raised money by swimming 21 miles in the sea along the Sussex coast last year. Megan, Olivia, and Emily (Yr12) wrote and illustrated a children’s book, which they sold to raise over £1000 for a Worthing-based charity which provides educational materials for vulnerable children in Bulgaria. Congratulations, and we look forward to hearing who the winners are. In other news, we are thrilled that ten students have been successful in the national Junior Physics Challenge – with eight girls achieving Gold awards in the competition. And finally, this week over 60 students from Roedean and six local schools will take part virtually in the Roedean Academy, our programme of academic enrichment for Year 10. This will run over 3 afternoons for the next two weeks. Read these stories and more in the Head's Weekly Review.
