Head's Weekly Review 03 12 2021

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

School News

It’s the end of term! The festive mood has been spreading around Roedean, with lots of tinsel and decorations appearing around the School. The Heroes and Villains Gala Concert was held in the Chapel, with 150 musicians, in seven different ensembles. The repertoire included Handel, Grieg, and Prokofiev, alongside Queen, the Little Mermaid, and the Pink Panther. ‘I just loved the concert on Friday, funny and joyful, and so much talent and hard work’. Congratulations to everyone involved. The School also held a Dance Showcase on Thursday evening last week, which featured eighteen pieces, encompassing several different dance styles, all of which celebrated great dancers and performers. There were 37 dancers on stage, and it was so lovely to see pieces in which younger dancers, at the start of their performing journey were joined by more experienced dancers – what an empowering experience that must be for everyone involved.

And in other news, last Monday evening, parents, students, and staff, both old and new, joined together in Keswick Hall to watch a livestream from The Barbican of Annie Leibovitz in conversation about her new book, Wonderland. This book is the first time she has bought together all her fashion photography. A lovely evening was had by all.
