AROUND THE SCHOOL
This week we celebrated a number of special days in our
school community. We started with a special prayer assembly on Monday, reminding us of the rainbow promise God made. We remembered this as we prepared to begin the journey of Lent. On Tuesday, a number of classes
discussed Shrove Tuesday, accompanied by a few pancakes here and there! Ash Wednesday marked the beginning of Lent. Lent is the special season in the Church year which lasts for forty days and leads us to Easter. Lent is a time of prayer. Lent is a time for reflecting on the way we live our lives. Lent is a time for examining our hearts and being willing to make changes by being better people. It is a time for saying 'sorry' and asking forgiveness. It is a time when we look to God and do our best to live as God wants us to live, as we ready our hearts for Easter. The students received ashes on their foreheads in the sign of a cross. This sign was a reminder to follow Jesus and turn their hearts to God. The students have made Lenten promises, where they were asked to either give something up or take something up. Discuss with your child about their promise and the importance it will have on this journey.
Day 1 by Emily -
During the camp so far it has been extraordinary. Orienteering is so difficult because of the maps. It's hot and energy draining. My favourite activity so far has been archery. There are many more activities to be done.
Day 1 by Madalyn -
Camp so far has been amazing. We have been doing so many fun and exciting activities, like canoeing, orienteering and much more. We did trivia and played a game called snakebite last night. It is so fun being up at Mapleton with friends. I'm really enjoying camp.
