The 8th 9th July marked the start of the first ever Year 12 overnight Opt-In Retreat at DLS Cronulla. The setting of the retreat was held at the De La Salle Brothers community with a beautiful setting overlooking Gunnamatta Bay, Cronulla.
This retreat gave the opportunity for students who are about to start their HSC a chance to reflect on what the next chapter of their life holds. The theme was 'What Next?' which delved deeply into life post-school, life in the workplace and faith. This theme which was targeted at young adults who are transitioning into the next stage of their life and spiritual journey.
Finishing Year 12 can seem like a daunting and exciting time for all; however, this retreat aimed to give them the tools for this transition into the next phase of their Lasallian life journey. The major focus looked into the power of our personality, relationships and life. Some of the activities included an Emmaus Walk along the bay, Ferry Trip to Bundeena and preparing meals together for a community dinner.
