Mr Conway, Headteacher - Summer Message
We Are Proud of You
We are very proud of our students. They have demonstrated huge amounts of commitment this year. They have joined in and done their very best. They have worked hard, played hard and, generally, been nice. That is all we ask.
La Retraite is a school, of course, and exams are important BUT at La Retraite, exams and tests are not the only thing that is important. Tests tell us something but they don’t tell us about pupils as people. Tests don’t know pupils the way teachers do, and certainly not the way their families do.
Tests don’t find out that many pupils speak two languages. They don’t find out who can play a musical instrument or dance or paint a picture.
