What a busy end to 2018 it has been. In the last two weeks I have had the honour of speaking at the Secondary Presentation Night and Primary Celebration Evening, and at the Year 6 Graduation. It is a joy to marvel at the way in which our students grow and change over the course of the year. Thank you everyone for your support as I have been in the Acting Principal role this semester. I am grateful for all your encouragement.
I would like to wish you all the blessings of the upcoming Holy season, and I would like to leave you a Christmas GIFT:
G - for the GRACE of God - which He extended to us when he gave his son as a ransom for our sins. I pray His grace and peace will fill you this season. Ephesians 2:8-9: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.”
I - for INSPIRED - may God inspire you with His love to share the good news of Christ's gift for all mankind. 1 Thessalonians 1:3: “We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”
F - for FAMILY and FRIENDS - I pray you have a wonderful time sharing this precious time with your family and friends. May there also be lots of FORGIVENESS which brings restoration in relationships, so you are more able to share and receive love. 1 John 4:7: “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.”
T - for TRUTH - may the true meaning of Christmas fill your homes and hearts this holy season. May His truth fill you with life and joy. John 14:6: “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.””
Thank you for a wonderful year, and God bless you. I look forward to seeing you again in 2019.
