On Friday 12th January, Year 8 students enjoyed a Retreat Day at Sacred Heart Church, led by our school Chaplain; Ms Murphy. The theme of the day was centred on ‘Building Bridges’, and students spent time in groups, reflecting upon those close to them in their lives and how they can build better relationships with family, friends, God and the community.

The day was brought to a close by each group selecting a charity they were aware of in their local area and coming up with ideas of how they could raise money for it. This session was a mini introduction to get them thinking about fundraising, prior to the Philanthropy Project that all Year 8 girls will be taking part in over the course of this term.
