The Fruit of our Faith
One of the aspirations in our Student Graduate Profile is for students to “demonstrate servant leadership and co-operate positively by contributing to the community, and loving others.” I am encouraged by the increased enthusiasm from students to outwork their faith through volunteering their time and ideas across the school. From our new School Council to our Senior Ball committee, the notion of service is growing. This Kingdom concept will serve our children well in their future lives.
This week I attended a Principals’ hui with Perry Rush, President of the NZ Principals’ Federation, where we discussed a number of issues relevant to Principals: a Leadership Centre, Kahui Ako, and Principal workload/wellbeing. It was encouraging to hear the passion from Principals when talking about their students, and their commitment to improving the learning environment in NZ schools. With an election coming up it is another opportunity for parent voice to shape our childrens’ futures.
“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward.”
