Year 11 and 12 Remar Embarkation Camp Highlights

From Sunday to Tuesday afternoon, the Year 11 and 12 Remar students had the opportunity to experience a retreat-style camp in Serpentine. The main focus of this camp was for us to explore what it means to ‘be a witness in our community.’ Throughout our time away we participated in a variety of sessions that were centred around how we can incorporate the values of presence, perseverance, and simplicity into our daily lives, especially in a hectic year where we can often be overwhelmed by the pressures of school. Aside from this part of the camp, we were also able to spend some quality time with our mates and take a break from study, tests and stress.
Much time was also put aside to plan various activities of community service to be undertaken throughout the year, including discussing ways in which we can support the homeless people of Perth, and raise money for various charities.
For the Year 12's entering into our last year of Remar, after being together for 3 years, our group have become very close and consider each other to be part of the same family. These bonds we have rekindled through this camp will stay with us throughout this year and after we finish at Newman College. Remar is a fantastic program which we have all gotten so much out of, giving us skills that we will use now and in the future. We look forward to competing our Gold crossing and sharing memories that we will remember forever.
