Weeks 6-7 Head of Foundation Phase Reflections

On Friday, Week 6, for Chapel, Foundation students were very excited to worship God with singing and dancing, led by the Groovy Grovers. Our Special Agent character from the skit reminded us that God wants us to love and care for one another at every opportunity we get since we do not know how much time we have left to share his message of love to everyone. We concluded Chapel with the song “You Reign”, declaring that God reigns over the earth and in our hearts.

On Monday, Week 7, for Assembly, students from Foundation Phase received certificate awards for being inspiring learners at Groves Christian College. Our ‘Servant Leader’ award went to Brianna from 2B for demonstrating kindness and manners to everyone she meets. ‘Class of the Week’ trophy was awarded to Prep S for using excellent comprehension and listening skills during carpet time. Students were encouraged to hydrate themselves throughout the day due to the hot weather forecast for the week. Year 3 students were very enthusiastic about going on their excursion this Thursday to the Botanic Gardens at Mount Coot-Tha. Our problem-solving skit was based around the 4 Rs, describing what type of learner students need to work towards when they come to school. We looked at how to be a ‘Respectful’ learner and Foundation Teachers demonstrated how we can respond to show respect towards others. Students from 2F concluded our Assembly with prayer, asking God to heal their sick peers.
