Remar Gold Retreat Highlights

Remar Gold Retreat Highlights

Last Thursday our Remar Caravel left for Melbourne to embark on the final camp of our Remar journey. We were excited to see old friends and make some new ones, but also were slightly sad at the prospect of our three year journey drawing to a close. We were lucky enough to have some free time to enjoy the sights of the city briefly before we travelled to Phillip Island for the commencement of the Gold Retreat.
We were joined by 170 other students from 12 different Marist schools across Australia. This camp allowed us to reflect on personal development over our school lives as well as to contemplate what the future will hold. This part was very significant as it gave us time to slow down from our busy school lives and take the opportunity to reflect. The team also encouraged us to continue our Marist involvement after school by joining programs like MYM and choosing a career path that supported our values and beliefs.
Throughout the camp there was some great banter as we cherished what would be one of our last times together as a caravel. The atmosphere throughout the camp was very memorable and spirits were high.
We would like to give a big thank you to Mrs Bromanto for making the journey with us and for all of her support throughout our time over East. Finally, we are truly grateful for Mr Puljiz, who has been our rock over the past three years and his great sense of humour and family spirit which has truly enriched both our time at Newman and ourselves as individuals.
Emily Redwood and Michael Heelan, Year 12 Remar Students
