The Year 11 Retreat took place on Friday 13 September. The focus for the retreat this year was living a life of Mission. Students started the day with guided meditation with a focus on answering the call of Jesus to enter their hearts. Students were encouraged to listen to Jesus knocking on the door of their hearts and then open the doors of their hearts.Our guest speakers were from the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Hastings. They shared their journey working with issues of social justice, in the local community. Students then went to PaknSave to buy food parcels for various groups for Saint Vincent de Paul. Students then ended the day by painting rocks with scripture quotes and placing these on the beach as a way of spreading the Good News in the community.
