Ethos & Values
The curriculum, and each and every aspect of La Retraite, has Christ at the centre. At La Retraite, we believe that each pupil is made in the image and likeness of God and therefore is unique and equal to others.
The school's Ethos and Values are reflected in the school's motto:
'To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God' (Micah 6:8)
To Act Justly - We believe in treating everyone equally and with justice. Jesus was just in his dealing with the Jews and the Gentiles, and in this school, we strive to follow Jesus' example.
To Love Mercy - Jesus was merciful not only to those whom he loved but also to those who hated him. The merciful acts of Jesus are examples that we follow here in this school through our words and deeds.
To Walk Humbly with God - Jesus is the ultimate example of walking humbly with God. We believe that by loving God and others, we are walking humbly with God in the light of Christ.
