What an amazing two weeks we have had in the College. Last week the excitement of Book Week filled the air, and it was a delight to see some of the Secondary teachers join the Primary team in dressing up in theme, as characters from Peter Pan. Children in the Primary were involved in various activities, about which you can read on the Primary Page.
The theme of Book Week was "Find your Treasure", and it got me thinking.
Matthew 6:19-21 says, "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
What do we treasure in life? Is it as the world would have us believe, to desire after material possessions, wealth, a great job, or even popularity. Or is it something less tangible? Perhaps it is about family, friendships, or even deep values that drive us.
In the sermon on the mount, Jesus reminded us that God knows we need some things to survive, and that he takes care of these. He commended those who would "seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well" (Matthew 6:33).
What a privilege it is to partner with parents in Christian education where we can remind one another and train our children to seek first God's will, God's way and God's kingdom. If we find our treasure in Him, then I believe we will also open our hearts to see the treasure of the blessings He gives us every day.
We trust that you have taken the opportunity to partner with us and discuss your child/ren's progress at the Parent-Teacher (Primary) and Parent-Student-Teacher (Secondary) Conferences this week. If you were unable to make it, or if the teacher did not have times that worked, please feel free to email the teacher to organise a phone conversation at a mutually convenient time.
