Good Morning All

Our chapel theme for this week is GENEROSITY
The Bible reading is from  Luke 6:37-42.
The key verse: v38 Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together
and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

CONGRATULATIONS to all our teams who represented us on Saturday playing rugby.
It was a wonderful morning with players giving GENEROUSLY of their skills, energy and spirit to play their best.
The outcome a win to the 1st XV who played St Johns from Hastings
                         A win to the 1st XV Girls who played a visiting team from the USA
                         A win to the U14s who played Otahuhu
‘Give and it will be given to you … a good measure … will be poured into your lap.’
THANK YOU to all our Coaches and Management staff who give GENEROUSLY of their time to enable our students the
opportunity to play sport.
THANK YOU to our parents and families who always come to support our school and our children. Your GENEROSITY
is beyond measure.

Jesus here is simply speaking about the broad life principle of our spirit of giving. When we give GENEROUSLY the promise
is we will receive in equal measure.

Have a blessed day

Good Morning All

I wonder if Chaucer had a sense for us in the 21st century given his ‘time and tide wait for no man’ quote.
Tis ringing true as we head into the final weeks of the term.

INTENTION has been the catch cry for the week and we know the story around ‘good intentions.’
The outcome hoped for amounts to nothing if not accompanied by the ensuing actions.
The two are synonymous … you can’t really have one without the other or tis merely a thought.
The INTENTION becomes ‘good’ in the action which follows and the outcome hoped for.
God’s INTENTION is very clear in the life death and resurrection of Christ Jesus and the outcome hoped for. We have a faith, we are a people of faith grounded in the INTENTION and grace-filled actions of God towards us every day. We live in that reality and that reality is lived out in and through us.

CONGRATULATIONS to the Girls 1st XV who won their game yesterday against New Plymouth Girls High at New Plymouth. The outcome of their INTENTION and  awesome effort means they have made the Top Four … woohoo!

GOOD SKILLS to all our rugby teams playing tomorrow.
The Girls 1st XV will play a visiting team from the USA at 10.30am Field 1
The 1st XV will play St Johns from Hastings at 12pm Field 1
Both are home games and all are welcome to come and support.

GOOD SKILLS  to the CHIEFS in the Battle of the Bombay against the Blues in the Super Rugby final tomorrow.
Go well to Old Boy and former Senior Prefect Tupou Vaai and the team as they bring it home.

Have a blessed day and weekend.

Good Morning All

Welcome to Week 8 of Term 2. Time is marching on …
THANK YOU to all our teams who this last weekend represented the School in sport.

Our theme for this week is INTENTION.
The Bible reading v18 ‘Dear Children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth’ speaks with clarity as to what God’s intention is as a principle of living. We are to love and however that looks or pans out in your everyday living, it should reflect that God loves us and we love God. Simply, if God’s spirit lives within us, then it becomes our every day intent to share that spirit in ways that enhances all of our life. We are the hands of feet of Jesus in the world living to fulfil through our actions the truth of who Christ is in our every day life. Be INTENTIONAL!
Make every day count in our purpose and aim to be INTENTIONAL.

Have a blessed day.
