Jesus' Acension

During Religious Education we were talking about the day the Jesus returned to his Father. This day is called the Ascension of the Lord. Jesus promised his Apostles that he will send the Holy Spirit to be with them. As Jesus goes back to his Father he will prepare a home for all of us.

My Reflection

Year 8 students spent two days at the St Francis Retreat Centre. There we had an incredible time of reflection and prayer. Brother Philip led the retreat. Exciting experiences were finding matching leaves from trees and building an 'ark' using a packet of materials which were given to us and then we had to float our 'ark' (which contained small rocks) on the water. We talked about the symbolism of the ark and the rocks and what these could mean in our daily lives.

Our day ended with a treasure hunt. We had to work in teams, hold onto a piece of ribbon paper to stay together, and solve five clues before we were led to the treasure. My team was Brandy, Kahlanie and Waterlily. Each treasure we collected we had a special symbolic meaning attached to it, such as a telephone to help us communicate which is important, binoculars to help us to focus, a basket full of fruits to nourish ourselves and others and biscuits to symbolise the spiritual food we need on our journey in life.
What an awesome experience we had to help nurture our faith. We are truly blessed!
