On Thursday, 28th August, Zara Lawlor, Breanna Reed, Hamish Taylor, Caleb Henry, Morgan Edwards, MacKenzie Nicholson, Jarrod O’Connor, Bliss B Legayo, Finn Callaghan and Mare Murrell attended the World Youth Day held in Christchurch, along with Mr Terry and Mrs McCabe. We gathered as a Catholic community with fellow Catholic Schools. The purpose of this event was to celebrate the World wide Catholic Youth Day that was held in Poland this year. This consisted of faith expos, experiencing Polish dancing and food, going on a pilgrimage around Christchurch and showing compassion while participating in community service. On Sunday afternoon we watched a live steam of the Pope holding a Mass for the millions of youths gathered in Poland. This was a great opportunity to strengthen our faith and stand in unity with all Catholic Youths all over the world. We really enjoyed this great experience and highly recommend it to students in the future.
