Over the weekend, the much-anticipated Grade 10 live-in took place. Students had lots of fun with a variety of activities that were planned out by our Youth Worker and supervised by the school's educators.
One of the highlights of the live-in was the private use of the Baystreet Arcade. Students got to enjoy virtual reality, laser tag, and various games with their friends. Additionally, they went on a night hike, followed by a traditional meal in Mgarr, and enjoyed toasted marshmallows by a bonfire at school.
These activities have become a permanent fixture on our school calendar, and for good reason. They provide a unique opportunity for students to strengthen friendships, experience personal growth, and build community within the grade.
By participating in these activities, students develop their social skills and learn how to work together as a team. They also have the chance to step out of their comfort zones and try new things, which can boost their confidence and self-esteem. Furthermore, these experiences can help students develop a sense of belonging and identity within their grade and school community.
It's not just the students who benefit from these activities; the educators who assist and supervise the activities also play a vital role. They get to see a different side of their students and build deeper relationships with them outside of the classroom. These experiences can help them better understand and connect with their students, which can have a positive impact on their teaching and support.
Overall, the Grade 10 live-in was a huge success and a great way for students to bond with their peers, try new things, and build a sense of community within the grade. A big thank you to Mr. Julian and all the educators who helped make it happen!
