Developing loving hearts and strong minds for God Part 3

We started this series with a lesson from Proverbs 4:23, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Last week, we considered, Titus 1:15, “A person who is pure of heart sees goodness and purity in everything; but a person whose own heart is evil and untrusting finds evil in everything, for his corrupt mind and rebellious heart colour all he sees and hears.”

This week, Philippians 4:6-7 reminds us to talk with God in dealing with life. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

NAPLAN Parent Guide

Next week our students in Year 3,5,7 and 9 will complete this year’s NAPLAN tests. I have included a link to the comprehensive NAPLAN parent guide produced by 3P, the company that supplies us with Mathletics.

I encourage every parent of those students about to undertake the test to at least read Page 15, Helpful tips to prepare for NAPLAN.

Mathletics is an excellent online Maths learning program that I encourage all students from Year 1 to Year 9 to complete at home. If you want your child to succeed at Maths, this is the program.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums in our learning community. I trust you have a special day on Sunday. Primary School students will honour all mums at the Mother’s Day chapel service tomorrow morning.

God bless,
