Mr Conway, Headteacher - Spring Message

As we head towards the end of term and feel lifted by Spring, we have been reminding ourselves, at La Retraite, of the many things in our lives we can be grateful for.

In our assemblies we have discussed a scientific study that indicated a strong link between happiness and gratitude.

Indeed, one of the greatest and kindest of people I have ever known, taught me this simple idea; If there is only one prayer you ever say in your life, let it be 'Thank you'.

So we have much to be grateful for this term at La Retraite. There have been some amazing trips to Barcelona, New York, and the First World War Battlefields in Belgium. We received exceptional exam results for Year 11 in January; we enjoyed our excellent Music Explosion in March and so much more; happy pupils; excellent teachers; enthusiastic governors and supportive parents. A school that is buzzing with energy and success.

Thank you for everything you do to contribute to La Retraite's success
