14th and 15th August @ 10h00, starting at Tennis Court 2. Booking on 033-343 6100 or twoodgate@stannes.co.za. The challenges of having out theatre venue under construction has given us the wonderful opportunity to pursue alternative spaces for theatre performance in the school. This year, the girls have been challenged to create a more avant-garde style of performance, in the form of site-specific theatre. The performaces will take place during the day to avoid exposing performers and the audience to possible cold weather. Read more on our Facebook page at the following link:

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

The Frances Baines girls took Chapel this morning, basing their message on the importance of not judging others. In the Bible, Jesus told His followers to “remove the log from their own eyes before telling others to remove the speck in theirs.” We are so quick to judge others when in fact we should be focussing on correcting our own faults and failings. No one is perfect except God and therefore only God is worthy to judge. Judgement hinders our relationships with others and we must rather seek to build each other up and walk in faith and love with one another. At the root of it all is love, and God demonstrated His love for us by sending Jesus to die in our place. In the same way, He calls on us to love others and not pass judgement, even when we may not agree with their actions.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Mrs Dyer shared the message in Chapel this morning and she focussed on our value in God’s eyes. She asked the girls what particular things they placed their value in and reminded them that in God’s eyes each one of us is valuable and He loves and cares for us. We do not have a price tag and God will never dispose of us or give up caring for us. He created us all equally and in His image, and He longs to have a relationship with us. He also requires us to value others and to care for others as He does for us.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Chapel this morning was taken by girls from Mollie Stone and the focus of the service was “God’s love”. God calls on us to love Him and to love each other, even those we don’t particularly get along with! Love is demonstrated in our actions towards others and we should base our lives on the way Jesus loved and served all people. Before we can love and accept others, we need first to love ourselves. Only then can we can learn the true meaning of AGAPE love, which is loving without any expectation of repayment.

MANDELA DAY - A TIME TO REACH OUT

Today is a very significant day in our country. Not only is it a celebration of Nelson Mandela’s birthday, but it is a day to honour his legacy by giving back to society. Many people celebrate by giving up 67 minutes of their time to serve others in need, symbolising the 67 years Mandela fought for social justice in South Africa. A STEPP Sports Day to mark Mandela Day, is one activity that has been instigated by the St Anne’s STEPP leaders. All girls have been challenged to give of their time and join in the fun. This event will take place on our campus, together with one of our partner schools on Thursday 19 July. Egg and spoon races, wheelbarrow races, relay races and a fun soccer match will make up the afternoon’s programme. We anticipate lots of fun and a happy time together.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Staff and girls gathered together this morning to celebrate Eucharist and mark the start of the third term. Rev Susan’s theme for the service was “Finding God in our mess!”. Life is full of complexities; we need to make time for prayer, where we intentionally meet with God, and where God responds with love and inclusion. The Hebrew name for God is YHWH (vowels were only added much later) and this is the sound of breathing itself. We say God’s name with every breath and so move into the presence of God Himself. The question we need to ask is: “When our lives are in a mess, do we turn away from God or run towards Him?” God takes the mess of life and makes something new, turning it into a message to influence others.
