PB4L Report
Week 7

Jesus is the ultimate example of being a servant. He is our God, our King, but He came to the world a human to save us. At the beginning of the Lord’s supper, Jesus washed the disciples' feet as it was custom for a servant to do and here is what happened after.

 

“So when He had washed their feet, and taken His garments and reclined at the table again, He said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you? "You call Me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am. "If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.” John 13:12-15

 

Just as Jesus served us we are to serve others. Why don’t you have a disscussion arond the dinner table about exciting ways your family can serve those around you.

Years 2 and 4 joined for Encounter

On Wednesday, 13th March 2019, Years 2 and 4 all gathered together to make a boat out of paper plates.  Can you guess what the boat represents?  You're correct!  It's Noah's Ark.  We chose a partner from Year 2 and we zoomed straight into it!  We joined them in Encounter and it was awesome fun!

VCE SEISS 

On Tuesday 12th March, the senior girls competed in the annual SEISS Netball Tournament. Despite the cold weather, the girls performed extremely well. The first game they played was a little rusty, and came away with a loss. Even though they lost, the defence and passes were incredible. They then won the next three games and worked very well as a team; passing the ball evenly, using their athletic ability, intercepting passes and capitalising on their shots. They successfully made the semi finals, but unfortunately just lost and missed out on making the grand final. The girls played very well considering the conditions and the high level of competition.

 

The boys had the opportunity to display their athletic prowess on the Touch Football field. In horrendous, miserable and harsh conditions the boys held their heads high to come away with fourth place. With a mixture of wins and losses, the boys made Heritage proud by giving 110% and showing resilience, excellence, respect and service in the way they carried themselves.

Year 9 Camp Report

Just a couple of weeks ago year 9’s went on our first camp for the year, hiking camp. We set out for Wilsons Prom where the camp was held and had three days of walking around the National Park (beautiful scenery). There were three groups of us walking around in different parts of the park and each with certain walking routes. For this camp I decided to go in the high group which walked around 60 km’s and went to Roaring Meg, the Lighthouse, Waterloo Bay and many other unbelievable places. During the hike I learned so much about myself and my abilities to withstand challenges and maintain a positive mindset (resilience) while watching my friends encounter this too. Together we each had our moments of hardships but as a group we all completed the hike. My absolute favorite moment of the camp would definitely be seeing the lighthouse from a far on the second day, knowing that it was our destination and also watching the sunset over the bush each night. But overall the experience was amazing and honestly, it’s something I wish one day I could do again.
