With God we can…

Due to a recent vacancy we welcome Ruvimbo Saunyama as our new Parihaka House Captain. Ruvimbo was already part of our senior student leadership team, and will now bring her gifting’s to Parihaka House.

A great turn out for KidsCan today. Some wonderful costumes and hair. Thank you all for your support of this cause. We raised $145.20.

One of the changes in the Education Act now allows schools to have cohort entry at the start of each term. This means that children turning five during the second half of the previous term or during the first half of the coming term all start together, one entry point per term only. Children may be five and a few months or four and 10 months old when they start. We will be sending an information sheet and survey form out soon to gather your views on this proposed change at Excellere College. If adopted by the Board this would start in Term 1, 2018.

We can often give up on a task or dream because it is too hard, or takes too long. We want a quick     answer or easy fix. Unfortunately much of life is not smooth or straightforward, it takes time and effort to reach our goals, or complete the task. We can achieve much on our own, but with God we can achieve so much more. His love, his patience, his never-ending presence can be the difference in our lives. So don’t wait until you are in the ‘pit’ before you turn to your God, to walk with him daily and    invite him into your world. After all, we are only human.

“Jesus looked at them intently and said, ”Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”

Matthew 19: 26 (NLT)
