Retreats/Reflection Days and Sacramental Program
Students in Years 6, 7 and 10 participate in retreat day(s) each year.
Year 6 participate in a three-day Christian Living Camp in preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. These students are given the opportunity to further develop their own faith and to gain an appreciation of the gifts provided by the Holy Spirit.
Year 7 students participate in a one-day retreat. This aims to strengthen the ties between classmates and also serves as an induction day for students starting the secondary section of our school. Year 10 spent three days in a similar process of spiritual development. This time is highly valued by students as an occasion to reflect upon their beliefs and to share their gifts and talents with peers.
Both the school and parish work together to provide high quality sacramental programs for Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. These programs include a mixture of academic and spiritual activities designed to best prepare students for these sacraments. We believe in a holistic approach to spiritual development and there is an expectation of significant parental and family involvement, particularly in preparation for the sacraments.
