I am amazed at how quickly this term has gone. It was a pleasure to partner with you at our recent Parent Conferences. If you were unable to make it, please contact your child's teacher/s to arrange a time to discuss your child's progress.
This week, our Prep-Year 4 students were very excited to have parents and family visit for their celebration of learning open morning. It is always exciting to see families visiting the classes and enjoying time with the children as they share their learning for the term. The Years 5/6 students have been building billy carts with Secondary VCAL students, and Years 9/10 Performing Arts students were able to see a live show in the city on Friday night. I was thrilled to see some of our students donate to a homeless person, sharing God's love and enacting our College purpose to serve others as a thankful response for what Jesus has done for us.
This term has also presented us with some sad news and challenges. We continue to hold the Curtis-Morris family in our prayers at their time of loss. We also have families who have loved-ones challenged with health diagnoses, or perhaps there are other situations that are causing distress or concern. In those times, we often wonder how to maintain our faith and trust in God.
2 Timothy 2:13 (TLB) says, "Even when we are too weak to have any faith left, he remains faithful to us and will help us… and he will always carry out his promises to us."
What a wonderful promise that even when we are weak, and our faith is challenged, God remains faithful. He will always work for our good (Rom 8:28), and He always is working to bring forth his plans and purposes in our lives (Jer 29:11) to give us a future and a hope.
Regardless of your circumstances, may you find your hope in Jesus.
Many blessings to you all,
