He is never far away
We are still in the grip of winter with the cold and rain returning this week. Please ensure children are warm when they leave home, in correct school uniform. A raincoat or umbrella in the bag would also be a great help if walking any distance before or after school.
We are supporting KidsCan next Friday. This is a wonderful opportunity to support a worthy cause; children in New Zealand that go without the basics of food, clothing and healthcare. A gold coin allows you dress up crazy, so dust off those retro hats, do your hair and join the fun.
We have had a number of incidents recently related to how our students play together. Please remind children that we do not accept aggressive play, hitting or kicking as part of their games. We want to instil a culture of caring for each other at Excellere College and would expect your support with this. Please let your homeroom teacher know if incidents occur that we are not made aware of by children at school.
We know that Jesus is with each one of us, always . But when we gather together as a group there is power in our combined efforts. Whether this is prayer, praise and worship, or simply social korero. I encourage you to connect with your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and spend time in His presence, together. God is all about relationship, and He wants a personal one with us all.
