Growing as Young Men - Oakhill College

The Young Lasallians team spend much of their time on the road, passionate and devoted to engaging schools in a variety of diverse programs under the Lasallian tradition.

Today, the Youth Ministers held a Reflection Day for over 100 year 9 students from Oakhill College, Castle Hill.

Helping to facilitate the range of activities and group discussions were two recent Oakhill graduates and Oakhill year 11 students, who were all instrumental in assisting the Lasallian Mission team to enable group discussions and help mentor their younger peers.

The Young Lasallian team offers opportunities for young people to discover the fullness of life through innovative experiences of faith, service, and community. It also provides students an opportunity to get together and think as an individual, and as one community.

If you haven't seen the team in action, be prepared to be impressed. You really are in for a treat. 

The team are available to facilitate retreats from 1-3 days either at your school or off-site. Themes can be tailored to fit your student year level, desired theme, and context.

Each day provides a unique experience for all participants to contemplate their lives through the Lasallian Catholic tradition.
