Sharing the Journey

Share the Journey 2017

An enjoyable weekend walk along the Swan River was made even more special for 250 CBC dads and their boys as they immersed themselves in the College's powerful Year 7 programme, Share the Journey.

Spending time with your son is a crucial part of his development into adulthood, and the walk highlighted the critical function dads play in the lives of their sons.

During the morning, dads shared stories of their past and thoughts of the future with their sons as they leisurely strolled from Point Walter to Bicton Quarantine Park. While having a brief rest, the group listened to a talk from the father of the College Vice Captain in 2012, Steve Doohan, before heading back for the final talk from his son, Ayden, who is a recent graduate from Notre Dame University.

The dads then chose a quiet spot around the lake to spend a moment affirming their love and support for their boys, presenting them with a badge as a memento of the occasion.

The morning wrapped up with a sausage sizzle which was prepared by dads from the Parent Auxiliary, who are the driving force behind the annual walk, which is in its sixth year.
