Term 1 Week 4 2017
Nga mihi nui ki a koutou
Thank you for your attendance at our conferences last Thursday. The staff and I appreciate the support you give us and your child on their learning journey here at Our Lady of Lourdes School.
Please be reminded that if you ever have a query or concern no matter how big or small, come and talk to us about it. “A problem shared is a problem halved” so they say.
It is great to see more of the sun this week so far. Let’s hope this keeps up for a little while longer!
Enjoy your week
Jacinta Cousins, Principal
Virtue of the Week
Diligence – Puku-mahi
Diligence is working hard and doing the best job you possibly can.
When you are diligent, you take special care to do things step by step.
You think and move carefully to make sure things will turn out right.
Being diligent is being industrious, giving all you have to give to whatever you do.
We practice puku-mahi when we:
- pay attention to what we are doing
- do things carefully, step by step
- practice to the point of excellence
- give our absolute best to what you do
- work hard
- don’t give up.
Reflection of the week
The readings this Sunday focus on God’s constant care for us. The first reading tell us that God is like a mother who will always care for her child. The Gospel tells us that God is the creator of all and will care for all. When we trust that God, like the mother in the first reading, will take care of us, we are not filled with anxiety or worry.
With trust in our God our needs will be served. Our faith is not in the things we need, or in our own ability, but in the one who provides. We are like children in the care of our mother, our creator.
