Missions

Our Student Representative Council members and Stronger Youth students, in conjunction with the College Community, work very hard throughout the College year to raise money for the missions and promote service in the community.

The kindness of our staff and students enables us to raise the funds that we do. We are fortunate that our SRC body are so enthusiastic and motivated in ensuring our targets are achieved.

Renewals and Retreats

Retreats are days set aside for our students in their year levels to take time to reflect on their values and beliefs and challenge them to grow as individuals.  Each of these retreats include a short liturgy, including a time of prayer and reading of hearing from scripture.

Our Year 7 Retreat is integrated into the Year 7 Camp which is held early in Term 1. This camp acts to welcome new students to the college and introduce them to our Marist community.
Year 8, 9 and 10 have their Retreats across the year, each with its own theme to encourage students to reflect, learn and grow as members of the Catholic community.  

The Year 11 Retreat includes a guest speaker/s organised for this day, looking particularly how students can be leaders in their local community. This is a compulsory day for all Year 11 students.
The Year 12 Retreat is held at a camp venue over two days. This retreat enables our Year 12 students to reflect on their time at MRC and appreciate their transition from child to young adult journey. The retreat is compulsory for all Year 12 students.

Retreats allow our students to:
  • take a pause from the "business" of everyday life
  • have an opportunity to strengthen friendships
  • take time for quiet prayer and reflection in a peaceful atmosphere
  • a fun ‘time-out’ for recreation, games, songs, learning and play
