S show respect- U understanding M- Mercy …what next?
Our theme of, “How Strong is Your Heart? “ has been gaining pace over the weeks as we have explored the ways in which SHOWING RESPECT, UNDERSTANDING and MERCY to others strengthens our heart.
In Chapel last Friday we witnessed “Wanna be Champion” Sumo wrestlers, Mr Tim “Yung” Wurr and Mr Rob “Nuu” Man (see photo) battling it out for the title of “Kindness Champion of the Year.”
Chaplain reminded us that King David didn’t just talk about understanding others but he tried to walk in their shoes. With each act of kindness, especially towards the crippled grandson of King Saul, King David’s heart grew stronger and stronger. We hope we can follow his example.
Thank you Mr Wurr and Mr Newman for a magnificent Sumo performance
Whole School Assembly – “To Infinity and Beyond”
Happy Christmas Everyone! The Sports Hall was packed with Christmas cheer and laughter as Pre-Prep and Prep joined together to launch our Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal 2017, “The Magic Shoebox”
Little did everyone know, that hiding inside the giant magic red shoebox, were some toys desperate to come alive. Pictures say it better than words, so please take a look at the photos and follow the link to watch the movie of the Magic Christmas Shoebox. A massive Christmas Thank you to Mr Chris Hagley for making such an amazing giant box, the Estates Team for helping to transport all the props, for the sound, lighting, and filming crew- Mr Isherwood and Mr Nicklin and last but by no means least, the very gifted and talented drama company – Mr Harrison, Mrs Walker, Mrs Lambert-Green, Miss Stefanowski, Mrs Palmeri, Mr Newman and Mrs Barrowclift.
