This week we celebrated 'Learning Assistant Appreciation Week’ in the Primary School. We took the time to acknowledge and thank these very important members of the teaching team who contribute to the learning of all our students. These special members of the team bring an expert knowledge, wisdom, patience, creativity and empathy to support, to not only the students but also the classroom teachers in our learning community. The function of our LAs within the Primary team, in supporting the learning and wellbeing of our Primary students, is a perfect illustration of the unique gifts and strengths of each person working together in the body of Christ. It takes us all working together to be complete. Thank you to all our wonderful Learning Assistants in Primary School.
1 Corinthians 12:12-19
Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ... Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body... But in fact, God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
