On Thursday October 17th our Sixth Year students went on an overnight trip to Tanagh in Co Monaghan along with their teachers Ms Kinsella, Mr O’Malley, Ms Hogan and Ms Kenny.
A Retreat is time spent away from one’s normal life. Our Sixth Year students spent time together in a relaxed friendly environment. To start off the retreat, students enjoyed water activities to help them bond. This was followed by a Reconciliation Prayer Service guided by Ms Kinsella (our school chaplain).
Other activities on our Retreat included a Guided Night Walk in a forest, Meditation and a Trust Walk.
Students worked in groups and listened to each other. The activities helped students to come to a better understanding of themselves, their relationship with others and to reconnect with God. A great day and night was had by all.
