WEB EXCLUSIVE The Senior Class left the halls emptier than usual today as they embarked this morning on an overnight retreat to the Marin Headlands.

“We are working with a group called Nature Bridge,” senior Annabelle Leung said. “I believe we will be [taking] a few hikes and bonding together.”

The faculty members accompanying the group are those who have lead the senior paws advisories since the start of the class’s first year at Convent.

“Anytime you are able to spend time with your classmates outside of the classroom is excellent,” senior paw advisor Jordan Lewis said. “It’s the same for faculty too, to be able to reflect on the last four years with this group is [great].”

The retreat will provide opportunities for the group to participate in activities together until returning to San Francisco Saturday afternoon.

“The retreat is a great time to reconnect,” Leung said. It’s nice to get away from school, and it will help us come together before we all graduate in less than three months.”
