Celebrating International Women's Day
We were delighted to welcome Surgeon Cadre Fleur Marshall and CPO Janine Potts from the Royal Navy to La Retraite School. Surgeon Cadre Fleur Marshall and CPO Janine Potts talked to our Year 8 Year 10 and the Royal Navy Cadet students about their career in the Royal Navy, how they embarked on their career and what it feels like to be a Woman in the Royal Navy. The students had the opportunity to ask questions which they found insightful. Surgeon Cadre Fleur Marshall and CPO Janine Potts were really inspirational, they provided an insight to what might be achieved by young women with determination, aspiration and hard work. A number of students also got to attend Streatham and Clapham High School, to listen to a talk delivered by US Ambassador Jane Hartley, Jane spoke about the importance of using your voice and being heard. Students were encouraged by Jane's talk and took every opportunity to ask questions.
