Hope and Wisdom

In recent weeks and months we have seen many ways that individuals in the wider community demonstrate their personal values around Hope and Wisdom. Even outside the current media and health events, as humans it is not unusual for us to grasp at resources or assurances that support our personal hope and wisdom, such as money, possessions or position. While events or trends might shape how we express Hope or Wisdom, God’s Word offers enduring advice for his people in the true foundation we should build these values upon, which can help us maintain consistent character and faith in the good and bad times.

As Christians, we have Hope that stems from inner-peace, humility and confidence in God’s power and plans. Further, we can display and develop Wisdom through being prayerful, peace-making, meek and discerning in the journey God guides us through. We are assured that God is unchanging and faithful to comfort us through the seasons of life and eventually to his promised eternity.

Applying Hope and Wisdom amidst the current events, our College has been united in prayer for those who are immediately impacted by health challenges at this time. We have also encouraged practices that support individuals in maintaining health for themselves and their communities. As Hope and Wisdom are among the core values of our College, we continue to embed them in our teaching as the underpinning of these practices, and pray that they bring confidence to you and your family as part of our Groves community.

We continue to plan towards the following events for our school community:
• Week 8, Harmony Day Celebration: Thursday 19 March
• Week 10, Day School Primary Parent/Teacher interviews: Monday 30-Tuesday 31 March
• Week 10, Easter Chapel: Friday 3 April

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
