Senior School - Faithful Learning, Faithful Living

Senior School - Faithful Learning, Faithful Living

Thursday, 3 April 2014  | Cliff - SS Coordinator
The Senior School staff have thought long and hard about what we want for our students as they journey through the last few years of school.

We want to encourage each of them as much as possible and see them grow and mature.  We do not want to shy away from the academic responsibilities we have, and yet we know there is more to the schooling enterprise. A lot of this is summed up in a phrase we have been looking at lately - ‘Faithful Learning, Faithful Living’. 

We want to see each student as a unique person fashioned and shaped by God. As Isaiah stated “But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand”. (Isaiah 64:8). This is not easy in the hurly burly of daily life but the approach is to see students not only faithful in their learning but in their living. We aim to prepare students for their daily responsive discipleship and want to see students develop a base from which to live as the years extend beyond school. Our devotions this term have been looking at the figure of Abraham and the phrase ‘Faithful Learning, Faithful Living’ has been evident all term as we have looked at the faith that Abraham had in the harsh reality of life.

So with these words in mind, 2014 is shaping up to be another great year in the Senior School.
