On Friday 28 April, the Year 12s returned from their 3-day Retreat. Staff and students spent time away from the usual day-to-day stresses of school life and immersed themselves in a new and challenging environment.
The retreat experience is an integral part of the Religious Education curriculum and an essential part of the life of the students at the College. It provides possibilities for enhancing the spirituality of students in ways different from, but complementary to, those of the classroom and school environment.
The sessions involved group interaction and reflection with the sharing of values and life experiences. Students learned to trust, to build on their own self-esteem and review their own personal Christian position.
