GREATNESS
of knowing Christ Jesus my
LORD. Phil 3:8
The
Noticeboard
A message from Mr Lainson
Last week we considered the fact that our only hope in life and death is that
we belong to God. If we belong to God then we need to consider what is God
like?

‘Among the gods there is none like you, Lord; no deeds can compare with FEBRUARY
yours. All the nations you have made
will come and worship before you, Lord;
they will bring glory to your name. For you are great and do marvelous
deeds; you alone are God.’ (Psalm 86:8 – 10)
‘But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger,
abounding in love and faithfulness.’ (Psalm 86:15)
God is the creator and sustainer of everyone and everything. He is eternal,
infinite; he is outside of space, time and history. God is righteous and he is
unchangeable in his power and perfection, goodness and glory, wisdom,
justice and truth. He is personal and relational. God is loving, compassionate
and slow to anger.
What a privilege it is to belong to such a great God who is like none other.
And what does God ask of his people ? To glorify him as we live lives of
worship.

A REMINDER FROM MR LAINSON REGARDING
SCHOOL UNIFORMS
The two year transition time for the new school uniform is now over,
making the new school uniforms compulsory for all years.
Parents, please ensure that your child has the correct uniform by checking
your copy of the Parent Handbook.
You are also reminded that sports and regular uniform are not to be
interchanged under any circumstance.
EG: tracksuit jacket NOT to be worn with the regular uniform and the
woollen jumper may NOT be worn with the sports uniform.
HELP US TO HELP YOU
Many students have medical or other special needs in our school. So that we can best
care for all our students it is important to have up to date information signed by a
medical professional. For example: an asthma plan by a GP, a Paediatrician’s report,
an assessment by a psychologist or OT.
Many times in the medical world, terminology can change so it is important to get re
assessed where appropriate.
If you are not sure if this includes your child please speak to anyone from administration, learning support or your class teacher.
