    Year 11 Retreat Day

    On Friday 26th October the Year 11 Students attended their annual Retreat day at Ocean Grove.

    The theme for the day was “Religious”.

    Students participated in 4 workshops: 

    1. Beliefs, values and our worldview

    2. My beliefs and values

    3. Just Voices

    4. Meaning and Purpose in my life

    Students listened to a variety of presentations and the had the opportunity to reflect on their own place in God’s world.

    Isaiah, a refugee from Sierra Leone, shared a candid depiction on his 14 years in a refugee camp and his experiences there and afterwards in his move to Australia. Students were moved to hear of the challenges he has faced in his life.

    A mass at St Thomas Church concluded the day. Led by Father Gerry Healy, students were respectful and mindful during this service.

    Thank you to all the staff and students for making this a most successful day.
