Year 12 Retreat – Class of 2021

In order to begin an important year from a place of peace and reflection Year 12 headed off on retreat for 3 days during week 2. Spread across 4 venues near Campbelltown and the Southern Highlands the boys engaged deeply in the retreat activities and bonded as a cohort as they reflected on the theme ‘Dreaming the Future’. With a renewed sense of belonging, stronger bonds of brotherhood and a heightened appreciation of the place of God and spirituality in their lives, the boys return ready and renewed to take on 2021.
