The retreats of 2020 were unfortunately a one-day event due to COVID-19. They will be remembered for the great enthusiasm and involvement of all students who attended. Year 12 were given the opportunity to participate in important spiritual experiences on this day amid the peaceful and serene environment of North Avoca. They didn’t waste this opportunity.
Thanks to Mr Bonnici and Mr Beattie who helped facilitate the Retreat program. Students were led through reflection, prayer, beach walks and discussions about What it is to be a Man in the 21st Century, Forgiveness and Healing, The Importance of Communication, and their future directions. The celebration liturgy was very special as it is the last Retreat for this cohort. Parents and staff should be very proud of the input and maturity shown by Year 12.
I am confident that these quality experiences will have a lasting effect upon our boys in preparing them for the future. I have no doubt that in years to come, many boys will remember this day as being very significant in their lives. I thank and congratulate all Year 12 for the quality of their involvement.
