Retreats and Reflection Days

St Joseph's tries to involve students on a form basis in activities which not only involve them but are inclusive of families and wider staff. For example, the introductory Year 7 Reflection Day at Denman is followed by a barbecue for students and their parents at the school and a “Get to Know the Teachers” activity.

For students in Years 7 to 10, there is provision for Spiritual Reflection Days to be held twice a year to complement the Religious Education program and community service priorities of the school. This allows Student Coordinators and Pastoral Care teachers of each form to explore relevant values and issues, centred on faith, outside the normal classroom environment.

Related to these programs is participation in the Outward Bound program for all Year 9 students, together with its preparation and follow-up activities with at least one staff Spirituality Day held each year.
