Our main reason for coming to school is to learn. We learn how to read and write in English. We learn how to add, subtract, multiply and divide in maths. We learn about the Romans, Egyptians and Ancient Greeks in history and about different places around the world in geography. We learn how to play different sports in PE, how to draw and paint in art and how to use different programmes in computing. However, we learn so much more than what our teachers teach us in our lessons. Our school motto is “Learning through Faith” and that is the other learning I am talking about. We learn how to be followers of Jesus. How to act as he would have acted. How to be kind, to be forgiving, to be caring, to share, to look after each other, to love one another.
|A reading from the letter of St Paul to the Philippians |
May you always be joyful in your union with the Lord. I say it again: rejoice! Show a gentle attitude toward everyone. The Lord is coming soon. Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart. And God’s peace, which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus. In conclusion, my friends, fill your minds with those things that are good and that deserve praise: things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and honourable. Put into practice what you learned and received from me, both from my words and from my actions. And the God who gives us peace will be with you.
The Word of the Lord
Thanks be to God
In this reading, we hear how we should learn from God and how we should act as a result.
Our mission this week is therefore to show what we have learnt from God.
How could we do this?
By helping others
By being kind
By being thankful
By working hard
By giving to others
Thank for giving me the gift of knowledge, for teaching me how I can be more like Jesus. Help me to love others, to share what I have, to give to the poor and to be kind and helpful to my fellow pupils and the adults at home and at school. Help me to be more like Jesus every day.
Don’t forget to let us know in the comments below how you achieved this week’s mission.
