Psalm 19:8

But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.

 

What's New... ... Thought of the week

Give a little…

When times get tough, we often have a tendency to go into survival and self-preservation mode. This is normal and understandable as we are all trying our best to cope with unusual and often life altering circumstances. We tend to (understandably) focus on our own needs and our own struggles and our own wants. But I have to wonder what would happen if we turned our inward focus to an outward focus? What would happen if we were willing to open our eyes to the struggle and difficulties that those around us are experiencing. What would our own lives look like if we practiced compassion and spent our time finding ways to help them? And more than that, would the world look like if we all adopted an attitude of caring and giving and supporting and loving? It is interesting to note that science tells us that giving is truly better than receiving. Studies have found that practicing compassion not only enhances the lives of others, but it also leads to greater happiness, lower stress levels and improved physical health for ourselves. I believe that we have the power to change our own lives and the lives of those around us by caring and giving and loving. Get creative as you find ways to show compassion and kindness to a world in need of love.

Have a look at these articles as you consider ways that you can practice compassion and give to those around you:

Covid19

This is a time of great stress, uncertainty and for many, fear. The COVID-19 virus is having a significant impact on our community – not only physically, but also emotionally and psychologically. Through this site we aim to provide students, parents and our broader school community with some resources to support them during this time of crisis.

It is completely understandable that ourselves and our loved ones will be experiencing strong emotions during this time of uncertainty and anxiety and we want to be there to offer support and encouragement. Please do not hesitate to reach out to either Ms Chantal or Ms Stacey to make an appointment for one-on-one or group counselling.
