Head's Weekly Review 01 12 2023

Keeping up with everything going on at Roedean.

Last week there were three remarkable performances of Jane Eyre. The simple staging, understated costumes, and small cast, really allowed the audience to focus on the beautiful language and acting. The entire cast did exceptionally well, hardly leaving the stage throughout, and Lydia, in the title role was outstanding.

The dance showcase was incredible, bringing together both beginner and advanced students, illuminating the stage and creating a narrative of growth and artistry. There was a wide range of styles, from ballet to street dance, and the performances were a symphony of talent and creativity.

Monday saw our boarders descend on a fabulously festive C Hall for the much-anticipated Winter Wonderland, the Autumn term Boarders’ Social. There were delicious food and drink treats on offer, including hot chocolate, bratwursts, candy floss and even a waffle cart! The House Captains did a fantastic job of organising fairground games, and the addition of a giant snow globe proved to be the perfect photo opportunity.

Finally, we were thrilled to hear that OR Anabella Chan, recently won the Game Changer Award at the British Luxury Awards. Anabela is an inspirational fine jewellery designer, with her brand becoming ‘the first fine jewellery brand in the world to champion laboratory grown and created gemstones.’ On winning the award, Anabela said, ‘This is monumental for us as a female-founded independent brand. With last year’s winner being McLaren, this award is given to the innovators or innovations of British luxury – people, products, or services, which have shifted the dial and demonstrated meaningful change within their sector. Thank you so much for this award, and I cannot wait to keep learning and exploring. The best is always yet to come, and this award is also for all the female founders, independent business owners, and all the working mothers out there –this one is for all of us.'
