I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.Mother Teresa
We look forward to the ‘Spring Fair’ after school next Friday. There will be lots of great activities including the photo booth, garland making, craft activities as well as cakes and drinks.
The children enjoyed their hero/buddy meetings today; they learnt about the coronation and it’s ritual, as well as taking part in creative activities. We hope that families enjoy the special events that have been organised to mark the coronation and that it brings together the communities in which you live.
Friday class assemblies this term will be a collective worship session lead by each class on the following dates:
- Friday 12th May – Y5
- Friday 19th May – Y6
- Friday 26th May – Y4
- Friday 9th June – Y3
- Friday 16th June – Y2
- Friday 30th June – Y1
On Tuesday this week, our Y3/4 football teams attended a tournament at Parliament Hill Fields. All the children played fantastically well and really enjoyed the occasion. The girls won four of their matches and and drew one; the boys won three matches, drew one and lost one. With these results, the girls managed to come top of their group and will now play in next weeks’ finals. Unfortunately our boys team have just missed out on a place in the finals but did themselves and the school very proud. We are even more proud of their superb attitude and behaviour, the support they showed each other and the example they all set of our 3Cs. We are grateful to the parents, carers, brothers and sisters who came to support the children. Thank you!
Christian Value of Compassion
We have a choice in what we do when we see someone in need. We might shrug it off believing that it is too big a problem for us. We might tell the person it is their own fault anyway. We might say it is nothing to do with us or might even reach out and help them somehow.
Jesus never turned his back on anyone who needed him. He would even help people with big problems, even when it might be their fault they were in a mess. Even when it was none of his business, if people asked him for help, he always gave it to them. The feeling that made him do this was compassion. He was able to put himself in the shoes of others and imagine what it was like to be them. Compassion made him imagine how he would like to be treated if he was in their place.
Through the life of Jesus we learn that he wants us to show compassion for people around us and treat them as we would like to be treated ourselves.
And a leper came to Jesus, beseeching Him and falling on his knees before Him, and saying, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.Mark 1:40-41
