Retreat Theme:  Leadership  

Retreat Scripture

“Be strong and courageous for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” Joshua 1:9

“The one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest and the leader like the servant” Luke 22:26

Theological and Pastoral Focus

Your students will be inspired and encouraged to be servant leaders who work for the common good, protect the vulnerable and confidently claim their position as everyday leader.   They will learn about servant leadership through animations, teamwork games and Project Kindy stories and reflecting on their own experience.  The songs, games, activities, prayers and input give your students an opportunity to develop their skills and understanding of Christian leadership and come together as a community.

Retreat Activities

Your students will be invited to:

  • Play and reflect on confidence-building team games
  • Reflect on stories and lessons from the facilitator and their own life experience
  • Sing a fun, gospel-themed song or two together

Prayer and Craft Activities

Individual Craft Prayer Activity:  Students choose a Noble Gospel Value to personally strive for and draw a symbol of it on their own circular piece of Australian, recycled wood, sliced from a branch or whatever material you can access.  At the beginning of the prayer, their circles are placed altogether to symbolise the Cross so this prayer is an expression of your students aligning their heart with the heart of Jesus.  You are free to keep the special items for your classroom sacred spaces or for use in other school liturgies or to let your students take them home.

Group Craft Activity:  In small teams your students create a Leadership Poster filled with commitments to various aspects of Christian leadership in everyday ways.

Group Prayer: Your students will experience praying one decade of the Scriptural Roary together and receive a blessing to finish.   Your students will receive a blessing to finish.  Blessed Rosary Beads are available for purchase in bulk here.
