No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it.H.E Luccock
Our Year 4 girls represented the school this week in the London Youth Games and for the first time ever we came away with a medal! Third place out of 27 schools from across London is such a huge achievement and reflects the strength of the team in skill and support of one another. We thank parents for their support and Coach Steve for his leadership!
Congratulations to the children that were confirmed last Sunday in Holy Trinity Church by The Bishop Of Fulham. It was a very special occasion in which the children showed how ready they were in committing to their faith. It was also wonderful that the children has such strong support from the families and friends that attended the service.
Christian Value of Forgiveness
Jesus came to Simon Peter who said to him, “Are you going to wash my feet Lord?” Jesus answered him, “You do not understand now what I am doing, but you will understand later.” Peter declared, “Never at any time will you wash my feet.” “If I do not wash your feet,” Jesus answered, “you will no longer be my disciple.”John 13: 6-8
Jesus demonstrated that he was there to serve his apostles and to support them with his love and care. We must remember that one of those whose feet he washed was Judas Iscariot, the man who was to betray him. This is the ultimate sign of forgiveness when we are ready to serve people even though we know they may be working against us.
