During Week 1 of Term 4, all students of Year 11 participate in a three-day retreat at The Tops Conference Centre in Stanwell Tops, Wollongong. The aim of the retreat is for students to gain an increased awareness and understanding of themselves, their peers and their continuing relationship with God. The venue provides an ideal opportunity to allow time for quiet reflection as well as group sessions and recreational activities. The retreat is facilitated by staff from CBHS. There is an outdoor education component which will be facilitated by trained staff from the venue.
The retreat dates have been scheduled to provide the opportunity for students to rest and focus their energies before they embark fully on their HSC courses in Term 4. The Announcement of School Leaders will also take place around this time, so it is an ideal opportunity for the students to set goals for themselves and for the year ahead.
