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.

Congratulations to all of our girls who represented St Anne’s at the KZN Schools’ Debating Association Championships held at CURRO Hillcrest from 22 to 24 June. St Anne’s was well represented with 8 of our girls in the Pietermaritzburg squad of 38 speakers. Special congratulations to Georgia Schaefer and Esmé Thornhill-Davis whose team won the junior tournament. Esmé was the 3rd ranked junior speaker in the province and Georgia ranked 8th. Both girls were selected as members of the junior KZN team. Only 16 speakers (excluding reserves) are selected from all of the grade 8 and 9 pupils in KZN, so their selection is testament to their hard work and dedication.
