During the holidays the Herald published 2016 NCEA results in Decile groups (see below). In the Decile 5 group we were identified as one of five schools across NZ that achieved a 100% pass rate at Level 2. It is wonderful to be able to honour our Lord with this wonderful academic result. Well done team.
This term we are supporting Run4Bibles as part of our cross country. This cause helps provide Bibles for school children in South Africa. Please consider supporting your child in finding some sponsors for the race. No matter the amount it will help grow the Kingdom on Earth.
We have another busy term ahead of us with Excel visiting, Cross country (Run4Bibles), 40hr Famine, Sports tournaments, and the Equip Leaders Conference, all wrapped around our learning environment. We pray success for all our students as they continue their learning journey.
In this world where more and more of the responsibility for the growth of our children is given to others it is timely to remember that, as parents, the Lord has tasked us with the training of His children. As our Father guides us so must we guide our children, providing the love, encouragement, support and discipline they require. We look to Jesus for our role model, not the world.
