Here at St. John’s Retreat Centre, we provide various School Retreat/well-being programmes for primary and post primary schools in our tranquil surroundings. We are committed to providing a space where all who journey here are accompanied in their faith journey and their search for meaning. Together with the De La Salle tradition, we cultivate a welcoming, creative and artistic climate where imaginative responses and individuality are expressed and encouraged. Please take the time to explore our website, and may we cross paths if you find what you are looking for.
