Year 8 Retreat

As part of the spiritual development provided by the Religious Education curriculum at Holy Spirit College, the Year 8 students attended a two day Retreat facilitated by the NET (National Evangelization Team) and College staff on Thursday 14 August and Friday 15 August. This experience gives our Year 8 students a chance to step out of the normal school routine and to reflect on their personal and spiritual development. The focus and themes of the activities and discussions during the retreat were peer-group pressure, school friendships, gender issues, stereotyping and positive relationships.

Students also participated in the Empowered Relationships program at Holy Spirit College which advocates that young people can change statistics by making different choices, resolve issues in non-violent ways and can develop respectful relationships.
