Year 7 Retreat Day

Year 7 Retreat Day Wednesday 8th December

On Wednesday 8th December, Year 7 will be taking part in their first retreat day at All Saints’. The day takes place fully within the school day, but will be a very different to a ‘normal school day.’

Students are to come in non-uniform, as they will be taking part in a number of activities which will require them to be at ease in what they are wearing.

Students are to come to school as normal and go their Period 1 lesson, then will then be taken by their class teachers to the Drama Hall where Mr Sheehan our Head of RE and Chaplain will introduce them to their retreat day and the theme for the day which is ‘The Global Church.’

During Periods 2 and 3 they will be in their timetabled classrooms with their class teachers, but they will be completing reflective and engaging activities based upon the theme of the day.

Students will have lunch as normal.

In Period 4 they will be taken to the Drama Hall where Ann Neale a former teacher at All Saints who now works for CAFOD will lead the students through a CAFOD talk and interactive games and activities.

Finally in Period 5 the students will celebrate Mass as a year group for the first time.

They will then have ILT as normal to end the day.
