A Year 9 Student’s Perspective Of Retreat

In Week 9, Year 9 students participated in a wonderful Retreat.

The focus of the event was learning about the story of Mercy: the beginnings in Ireland, the arrival of the Sisters of Mercy to New Zealand and the stories associated with this. This special time allowed us to connect with God and our relationship with him was strengthened as we were reminded we are all made in his image.

We enjoyed a range of activities including, cross-stitching, painting and an opportunity to participate in Christian Meditation.
