Message From The HeadteacherApril 2017
During the Spring term, the school has been a hive of activity with Year 11 and 13 students working hard in preparation for their exams and many students involved in a range of activities. A few of these events need particular mention.
The Spring Concert was a roaring success and it was amazing to see so many talented young people taking part as soloists, in one of the various choirs and as part of the orchestra. We now have the challenge of finding a bigger venue as the Chapel can just about contain all the performers, let alone the audience.
Netball and Athletics teams have continued to triumph and this is a credit to their coaches, Miss Healy and Miss Clark, and the students. Chinwendu (Year 8) has been nominated as the School Sports Captain for her enthusiasm for all sports and dedication to La Retraite Sports teams – she is also brilliant at every sport that she tries. The `Manager of the Month’ and `Team of the Month’, must, however, go to the Debating team. They entered the Debate Mate league and are currently the top novice team in the country – an amazing performance!
