From the School Captains

Hello! This week's amazing value is one of Jesus’ qualities; Service. He had made blind people see, played with little children when the adults told them to go away and miraculously calmed a storm to save people from drowning.

 

Service means to show support, kindness, love and respect by helping others. Making life a little for those that are going through a tough time or struggling with life. At school,  helping teachers pack up or clean up, playing with someone who is left alone or supporting someone who needs help with homework could be service ideas. Helping others makes their day better, but also gives you a great feeling.

 

The Bible talks about service in Matthew 25: 35-40 says, “35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

 

Heritage College showed service in the community last week. The Years 5 and 6 students visited mothers in the community around the school wishing them a Happy Mother’s Day and giving them a small gift. Many mothers enjoy this visit from our students each year and students delight in serving God by serving others. 1 Peter 4:10 says “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God.” In this verse it is saying to use all your skills, gifts and talents to serve others as you would serve the Lord. In Galatians 5:13, it says, “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” In both 1 Peter 4:10 and Galatians 5:13 it tells us that we should use all our use are gifts humbly and serve others.

 

So if you have a chance to serve others, don’t miss that opportunity, because if you are serving others, you are serving the Lord.

Newspapers Wanted

Year 4CJ is in need of some newspaper in the coming future and would like to invite anyone who has spare unwanted newspaper at home to please send it to our classroom.  We use newspaper to line the bases of our bird cages to keep them clean as well as cover our desks when we do painting or craft. 

 

Although we still have one newspaper left, we know we will need some more soon.  We thank you in advance for your generosity.  Any extra newspaper that we don’t need will go to the Art room to be used for art.  Thank you

What if my child is cyberbullying others?

This is a really tricky and often uncomfortable thought/idea/discussion to have. The questions, how will I know, what do I do if they are? Will race around our heads and incite stress/anxiety.

 

We all view our children as our ‘babies’ no matter how old they get and often the idea that they might make mistakes and do the wrong thing seems alien, but it is important that we teach our children, no matter how hard the conversation might be, that learning from mistakes, making it right and doing the right thing is always best.

 

A great quick article about this very idea (found on the eSmart website) might help you support your child through these difficult situations.

Year 10 SEISS Futsal

Thursday, 17th May saw 11 of our finest athletes from Year 10 compete in the annual SEISS futsal competition at Mt Evelyn. It was a cracker of a day with all students showing vigour and class in all aspects of the game.

 

The girls squad fought valiantly all day on the court winning or drawing every game in the group stages bar one. The final match was against Bayside who were undefeated up until that point. With a multitude of quality shots taken from both sides the game concluded with our girls losing in a tight match by 2 goals. Full credit to the team for playing the whole day with no substitutions.

 

The boys ended up getting through their 6 group matches with 4 wins and only 2 losses. A game of particular importance to points and morale was their third game against Bayside where Man of the Match Junior kicked a cracker of a goal from halfway to seal the victory 3-2.

 

After dispatching of their opponents in the semi final with relative ease they moved onto the grand final match of the tournament against MECS. It was a nail biter right from the start and only a coat of paint from the goal posts separated several goals from going in. With goals being scored back and forth, the game was locked at 2-2 at full time. Both teams scoring 3 from 3 in the penalty shootout it came down to sudden death. Heritage saved the next goal from going in and scored the next goal to conclude the epic game in which the entire stadium erupted with applause.

 

Our key player for the match was goalkeeper Elijah Doumias who saved the final penalty and scored our last goal. Thanks to his solid and consistent performance in the final along with the rest of the squad we were able to consolidate the win as the underdogs.

 

We thank God for conceding no injuries and that the students were able to experience a fun and entertaining day playing sport whilst representing Heritage College with pride.

Visiting the Primary School

Year 11 Psychology Students visited the Officer Primary students today, working with Prep and Year 3 students to discover the developments in cognition or the way we think as we grow up.

 

Students spent time together running activities to observe the way Prep and Year 3 students understand the idea of conservation - that objects retain the same properties even when their appearance changes.
