Madonna's grade nine religion classes participated in their first high school school retreat on Monday, November 14th at St. Philip Neri Parish. Our grade nine retreat was facilitated by Positive Gear.


The focus of Madonna's grade nine retreat was on “Identity, the I in Team.” The day was designed to warmly welcome each student into the Madonna community. The process of the retreat worked to invite each student to examine their personal identity and collectively, as persons of faith, and members of a greater community.  This team building experience provided the opportunity for our grade nine students to participate in self-discovery, self-awareness, and self-appreciation in the scope of goal setting. 
This retreat linked well to multiple themes in the grade nine religion course including, healthy relationships, self-love and identity, stewardship, social justice, prayer, and more. This day of reflective community learning helped to foster a better understanding of the big ideas of the grade nine religion course.


A special thank you to the Positive Gear Team for facilitating this wonderful opportunity for students!
