Australian Research on Retreats

The 200 page report (Research on Retreats) includes data and discussion of issues arising from 4 surveys across a sample of secondary schools in 7 Australian Catholic School Systems. 500 teachers and 1500 students contributed to the study. A general survey looked at the scope of retreats and retreat-like activities across the secondary schools. The survey of teachers who were involved in the conduct of retreats and the survey of senior school students showed how both teachers and students viewed the purposes and practices of retreats; this also highlighted similarities and contrasts between their views. A survey of teachers who were not involved in retreat work sought to find out how their views might contrast with those of their colleagues who conducted retreats.
