What Has Been Happening in Religious Education
I have been privileged to be part of the Year 12 Retreat and to spend time with your wonderful daughters. The theme for our Retreat was John 10:10 “I have come so that you may have life and have it to the full” and our fantastic students really lived life to the full during the three days they were away.
It was a wonderful opportunity for me to get to know your daughters better and to share with them in their spiritual growth. There were some very thought provoking discussions about the girls’ relationship with God and I was extremely impressed with their maturity and insight.
The time spent away from school is such an important part of the girls’ journey in their faith. At this time of the year, it is also a good opportunity to put aside the pressures of school and to focus on something different. I hope the girls returned refreshed and renewed and that they will be able to really enjoy their remaining time at the College having made new friendships, developed deeper and stronger bonds with their peers and having had an opportunity to create some wonderful memories that they will be able to take with them during their lives.
I would also like to take the opportunity to thank all the teachers who gave up their own family time to come away to Retreat. There is a huge effort that goes into creating a memorable and meaningful experience for the girls and this could not have happened without the dedication of our wonderful staff. So to Brian Culleton, Anne Sukkar, Laura Mirabello, Marco Gianni, Stefan Roberts, Michelle Barras, David Martin, Wes Guthrie, Mel Bullock, Damien Bernado, Connie Georgiou and Jan Filipetto – thank you for contributing to this wonderful experience for our students.
