Pastors' Corner

Purpose

We live in an age of nearly endless possibilities for our students. It is an exciting, but also daunting, age to live. Already we see through their thoughts, words, actions and personalities the plans they have for their future.

Are we a school full of future teachers? Perhaps musicians? Engineers? Pastors? Online bloggers?? It matters little the goals we have for our life, what matters is God’s Presence alongside our journey. We are not living out our purpose on this earth - we our living out God’s purpose. Whatever your day to day contains, live it with kindness, live it with God, live it for His purpose.

Have a splendid winter break, God bless!
