From the Director of Identity and Student Formation, Suzanne Walsh
Monday 22nd July saw 170 of the Waverley College staff take part in our annual Staff Spirituality Day. This year the day was divided into two sections. Firstly, Fr Richard Leonard SJ addressed the staff on seeing God in all things, even at the darkest times in our lives, through an inspirational and engaging presentation.
All staff then participated in a variety of service activities. These ranged from volunteering with the Holdsworth and Charingfield communities, the Matthew Talbot Hostel, Rough Edges, Cooking for Good, Kadoo indigenous tours, cleaning up beaches, assisting those in need within our own Waverley community and still life art and baking activities here at the College.
It was a privilege and humbling experience to be able to interact with so many amazing individuals throughout the day. Building relationships through these activities is something that we will continue to foster throughout our social justice and advocacy program. Many thanks to those staff who facilitated these activities, especially here at school, and to everyone who entered into these new experiences so enthusiastically.
