Year 8

Year 8s

The Mirrabooka Frontier Club is an initiative of volunters that provides a formative environment for their boys which echoes the positive atmosphere and values of their own family homes. At Mirrabooka, we work with parents and the boys themselves in three areas: 

  • Human virtues – helping boys to take study seriously; to want to do things well out of a sense of mission to serve and help others; to learn to use their freedom (use of time, maturity, etc), to be honest, sincere and upfront; to be cheerful and resilient and many more. 
  • In their relationship with others – by being a good friend, a son, a brother, etc.
  • In their relationship with God – Progressively teaching them to pray and have a personal relationship with God and to learn to value and love confession and spiritual direction.

Regular Activities

Boys in Year 8 attend Mirrabooka once a week on a weekday. This year (2021), Year 8s attend Mirrabooka on Thursdays. On this day they do one hour of study, pray, attend a talk and play sport.
