A competition has been running between our school buses to encourage students to remember their Student ID Cards and use them to tap on and off. This week two of our buses had 100% of their students use their ID cards – congratulations go to Mrs Turner’s and Mr Tupou’s buses.
Prayer is an important part of our school life and to celebrate this a College Prayer has been written collaboratively by students and Chaplains with feedback from the Staff, College Council and Home and School Association.
We are humbled by God’s blessing in our community and ask that you continue to pray for our school.
The College Prayer is:
Thank you for blessing our school community.
We acknowledge the gifts and opportunities you have given us to live and learn in a loving and caring community. As students and staff we pray that we will act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with you.
Continue to teach us respect and compassion for others. Please bless us with the initiative to seek wisdom and the integrity to live to the high standard You have set.
We praise You each day for who You are - Our Creator, Redeemer and Giver of Grace.
This we pray in Jesus name,
