Wednesday's Notices

  • "the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy..." John 10:10
    In many youth events I have done an activity where you squeeze out toothpaste and then try and get it all back into the tube. Only once did we have to eat the remaining toothpaste which no-one did because we were quickly reminded that while it goes on your teeth, you shouldn't be eating that stuff. It's not good for you. This activity was always to show the power of words and that we cannot take them back once we have said them.
    Words have the power to kill; kill your dreams, self esteem, happiness. Words have the power to destroy; friendships, trust. Words have the power to steal; joy, peace. With the power that our words contain, it's no wonder that the thief - interesting term for the devil used here by Jesus - uses them to make our lives miserable.
    Words are his best weapon. He can twist them and change them and then make us believe them. Hold fast to the words that don't change and the thief's words will lose their power. So read your Bible. Make it part of your day, everyday.

  • On Wednesday 22 May, during lunchtime, Claire Fletcher from the Public Transport Team Environment Canterbury will be in our school accompanied by members of the Waimakariri Youth Council. There will be two gazebos on the main playing field.
    The Public Transport Team have proposed three public transport route developments for the Waimakariri District. They would appreciate pupil feedback. All Year 5 to 13 pupils are eligible to vote. Voting will be conducted using tokens which will be deposited into transparent boxes - similar to the "Good in the Hood" promotion run by Z energy. Students who wish to make comments will be issued with a post it note which will be affixed to a large pull-up map. Each vote will be rewarded with free popcorn. If wet, the voting will operate from the area by the Gateway Stadium Kitchen. Tom King and associates from the Student Council are supporting this endeavour.
