This will be the last full newsletter for this year as in a fortnight’s time, students will be enjoying the first full day of the school holidays. It feels somewhat premature but as I reflect on what William Carey has experienced over the past four terms, I am amazed that it all fitted into just one year.
Significant events for the school have included both joy and sorrow but overall it has been an exceedingly encouraging year to see the planning and development of new programs and the progress in learning in our students. It has also been a privilege to work in a community of hard working staff and committed parents who desire to see the best outcomes for their students and children.
Everyone will have his or her own highlights for the year and here are just some of mine (in no particular order) . . .
The longer I sit here typing this, the more I recall and so for brevity’s sake I will stop here. However, it is always the case that in a school this large, there are so many who do such good, but often do so without recognition. So I give thanks to God and would like to say ‘thank you’ to all students, parents and staff who make William Carey a wonderful place to learn and work.
So can I encourage you to say ‘thanks’, if you notice someone making a positive contribution to our school.
Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
