The Year 8 live-in kicked off on Wednesday, 2nd November. It was held at Mount St Joseph Retreat House. The enthusiastic Year 8 students gathered for this much awaited live-in at 3pm. They set off for a hike in the area and later had a discussion related to the theme of this live-in. After dinner they watched part of the first part of the film Wonder.
On Thursday, 3rd November our students woke up for another full day of activities. After breakfast and mass, they watched three short features and had a discussion on each one. A number of LSEs present explained different conditions they cope with on a daily basis highlighting the live-in theme.
After a delicious lunch they left for a hike from Manikata to Gnejna enjoying the beautiful views. Back at the retreat house they had dinner and continued watching the second part of the film Wonder.
On Friday 4th November the students had breakfast and after mass they discussed the film Wonder. Soon after they started working on a project where they were invited to show their creativity by preparing posters and slogans on the theme of human dignity and inclusion. After lunch they set off to Buskett and they played organised games prepared by the teachers. The live-in came to an end with the participation of the parents. We would like to thank the parents for their appreciation they show towards the work we carry out with their children.
We would also like to thank the members of staff for the time and dedication they offer to our students during these activities to make these experiences memorable. Thanks also to the staff and volunteers of Mount St Joseph for their patience and services they offer.
