IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Alison Coleman, Regional Director of SUIS and former St Anne's boarder mistress and pupil, addressed the girls today. She asked the question: “Who are you?” In asking this question, she explained that our name, family, school, hobby etc. are irrelevant if we question who the person within us really is. We all pick up “labels” at school and sometimes these labels make us feel unloved, unworthy and not good enough by the world’s standards. However, the Bible is quite clear on this – God loves us and labels us as His children, perfectly and wonderfully made. She encouraged the girls to see themselves, not as the world sees them, but as God sees them – as His children and heirs to His Kingdom.

STEPP OUT THIS DECEMBER

In supporting the MySchool initiative for STEPP, our community of swipers have raised R59 872.45. That is fantastic. What a difference this makes to the children we meet with every week. It would be wonderful to reach R80 000.00 by the end of the year. With the new MySchool App you can access your virtual card anywhere anytime.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Rev Susan’s message today was particularly relevant to the girls writing exams over the next two weeks. Using the quote: “The past is to be learned from, not lived in”, Rev encouraged the girls to look back and reflect on every lesson they have learnt, but then to move forward in order to learn more. More importantly, they need to learn more about themselves, for example, the best ways of studying, best place to study, and above all, to learn to find God in their studying. Rev suggested praying before starting to study, take breathing spaces to refocus and reflect, and asking God to help them to take in and remember the important points of the subject.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

The focus this morning was on “My Preparation Journey” and “The Pilgrimage through Exams”. Following on from last nights' service, where girls were given space to write affirmation notes, Rev Susan explained the meaning of her made-up word WABing – WORK AVOIDANCE BEHAVIOUR – and how we can turn this into a blessing. She reminded the girls of her talk last week on 'Paying it Forward', and suggested some practical ways to prepare ourselves and to help others. She encouraged girls to write a message of love, joy and/or appreciation to a friend, teacher or support staff member, thereby reinforcing positive thoughts. She suggested that we use the 3 Step Breathing Space to help us focus our attention, or to use breathing as a prayer. Continue reading the summary by clicking on the link below.
